About 

My appreciation for architecture is driven by the integrative quality of design in which one can draw references from diverse fields of study and engages members from various disciplines during the deliberation process. Through rigorous analysis and development, the designer challenges and improves the existing paradigm, while satisfying practical demands. My experience and education equipped me with the precise tools to initiate and execute design projects from the perspective of professionalism, comprehensiveness, innovation and implementation.
