I was raised and educated in Chile and the United States. As an undergraduate student I picked courses that allowed me to explore the fields of urban form, sustainability, religious architecture, and the fine arts in addition to the curriculum standards of Roger Williams University. The culmination of all these fields I studied was my Senior Project which was a mass housing sustainable intervention on an urban scale in Phoenix, AZ.
It was my interests in those fields that led me to travel to Turkey, Russia, Cambodia, and Japan; both through my university and by myself to learn about vernacular construction strategies.
