About 

I will be graduating from Masters degree in International architecture and development from Oxford Brookes University and have a Bachelors in Architectural Science from Ryerson University in Toronto. I also have consequently worked for over 1.5 years in a Diamond and Schmitt Architects, a firm pioneering in environmental design in Canada. Furthermore, since 2007 I have been working in eastern villages of Nepal on various projects and have recently co-founded LearningGrounds.org, a platform to experiment alternative solutions rooted to particular cultures and ecologies of the village communities. 

I hope to receive an opportunity to share my experiences and further contribute to a firm in New York.
