About 

"Every individual is the Architect of his own fortune..."

This quote was said by the Roman Emperor, Claudius around 54 AD. As you can see, Claudius tries to compare the individual with the Architect. But why? It is because the Architect was seen as someone that knew all aspects of society and culture and had no direct concentration. This is where I fall in...

I have studied architecture in San Francisco, Los Angeles and Rome, Italy and am a recent graduate of Woodbury's School of Architecture. However, my interests are widespread and range from graphic design to photography to fashion. I have never been one to compartmentalize myself and my numerous passions have only helped me in my main pursuit of being an Architect.
