I come from a family of artists. My mother is a painter, and my father an industrial designer. I grew up looking at the world around me as a collection of creations. I have experienced my life analyzing how people move and interact. How different colors or sizes of a painting can completely change the feel of it, and how incredibly a simple piece of furniture can embrace the human body. I grew up keeping an mind to the importance of creation. I have always known that I wanted to study something related to design and looked for a balance of Art and Science, of the conceptual and the physical. Inspired from reading books about Gaudi during my high school years, I knew immediately what I wanted to study. I went straight from high school into the Architecture program in Woodbury.

As well as learning the basics, I had the opportunity to explore the world with study abroad programs. Italy, China, and Germany were the countries that I have gone to study. All of these cities are strongly dictated by the age of the city, their cultural backgrounds, the nostalgia that the residents possess, religion, politics, etc. I have become so allured by the contrasting dynamics of each city, by the stories that the Architecture of a city could tell. Architecture holds the secrets of the past and whispers possibilities about the future. It interacts with the people by manipulating their movements and in turn those people can mold the Architecture to their advantage.

With our world and the human state of consciousness drastically changing with every day, the world of design and Architecture needs to make sure it is not getting left behind. Science and Technology, Religion, and Politics are more interwoven in our daily lives than ever before. Everything is merging together. Science and Religion are quickly being synthesized as one. What once seemed like a dream or fantasy is now becoming real. I am ready to contribute new innovative designs, designs that were once considered fantasy and are now becoming a possibility. I want to analyze how this currently hypothetical form of Architecture will affect us psychologically by studying past examples and comparing it to our current cultural situation. To do that I need to analyze the past, study Theory more in depth, and learn the new processes that are being implemented within architecture today.
