My curiosity has brought me to many places in the working field. I have managed to adapt quickly to the situations I was confronted and it is today my greatest ability and also my interest. After five years of work in private firms, I have recently returned to school to complete a thesis about my journey in China in the 2000s. Over there, I have taught architecture to local college level students for 6 years and have worked for international as well as local firms. In my thesis, I tackle the limits of western typo-morphological approach to urban planning by looking at the diffusion of western urban forms in contemporary China. I try to confront the deeply rooted western paradigms to other options.
My work experience spans different scales, from interior design to small-town planning. I conserve a social approach to many aspects of work, from team play to the human reach of design. I embrace globalization and multiculturalism as a way of life, where cultural diversity should be helping architectural design to achieve its most fundamental state.
I consider myself a world nomad, and I am open to different locations where I can share my enthusiasm and my experience.
