There is one quality that drives my aspiration to become an architect...insatiable curiosity. I am a problem solver; I strive to understand how things work. By breaking a problem down into its fundamentals, and rebuilding it on my own terms, I can intuitively address any task. I find fulfillment by using the skills I have acquired to foster community, and design lean, elegant solutions to social conflicts. I have a passion for the craft of building, and enjoy the visceral process of making ideas physical.
