Since starting my studies in design, I have been part of a community that thrives on a profound understanding of how creations, big or small, have an impact on how people live their lives. Architecture, design and the built environment provide a setting in which I can seek a balance between the efficiency of a structure and its aesthetic elements; and also a place where imaginations can run wild.
The knowledge and experience I have gained throughout the years allows me to communicate ideas and concepts to team members or clients in a way that ensures appropriate solutions. I thrive on making the most of being a strong team member and leader while solving challenges creatively for the most productive output. Ceasing to learn new ideas and technologies is not an option for me, as architecture is a field that flourishes on the present.
