I am fascinated by people and nature. I enjoy cultural and culinary exploration. Traveling, camping and hiking are my favorite vacations.
Architecturally, I'm fascinated my user interaction and response. Sensual functional design is my aesthetic. Affecting individuals and communities is my target. Ecology is as key as economy and structural integrity.
