About 

A student on the quest for his true calling. Architecture gave me a goal in life which truly gives me inner satisfaction and fulfillment. It has spurred me to think in ways I hadn't thought before, and I am truly enjoying it.

My experiences over the years have lead me to believe that a sustainable approach towards all design and planning is not just preferable, but of utmost necessity. Observing the world around has led me to believe that following a sustainable lifestyle is not a burden, and makes our lives a lot easier in the run. The concept of sustainability is not just about saving the world and the environment for future generations, but also about making our tomorrow easier by living a bit differently, today.
