Born in Costa Rica, I'm an advocate for adventurous situations, especially in the city.
At Sciarc, I learned that there is still community in Los Angeles, but that architects are many times secluded from the very experiences they try to design.
While working design/build, I learned more in two weeks than in 5 years of school, getting things done.
Just finished GSAPP (MS Arch and Urban Design) and looking forward to doing much greater things.
The profile pic is from a trip to Ghana with the Urban Design Studio in February.
I'll be in Latin America driving a pickup full of materials for the rest of the year. Update: I'm back in the States.
