About 

I am a resourceful and determined individual that has travelled the world. I have lived in
Europe and Latin America, which created an essential influence in my respect and understanding
of architecture and the humanist values it provides. My design approach is
derived from the sites surroundings and how to best utilize the existing environment to
create urban and pedestrian neighborhoods, while taking advantage of the natural elements:
light, wind, and local materials in the building structure. I believe that a strong
collaborative team design produces the best and efficient results
