About 

I am interested in an architecture of disruption - an architecture replacing the convenience of the familiar with the unexpected. This approach should encourage new ways of seeing by focusing on methods and strategies driven by process directed to invent and experiment; challenging the very notion of what architecture can be.

My interests in building include the opportunities to learn through the continual evolution of the work. A playful exploration to create a better built environment.
