Hello, I am a multidisciplinary architect based in Los Angeles interested in things that are small, medium, large, and even extra-large. Big ideas are important to me, but I have a fetishism for the finer details. When I am not working, you can catch me hunched over a computer or book researching for destinations to visit. As a person who learns best from hands-on experience, I always yearn for traveling because it feeds my insatiable curiosity in design and culture.
My expertise is defined by principles thats cross paths with industrial design. I am an advent follower of Dieter Ram's 10 Commandments for Good Design. In a nutshell, the goal of these disciplines "is to omit everything superfluous so that the essential is shown to the best possible advantage." I have a vision to join a movement that will couple technology with design that is innovative, useful, long-lasting, and honest. What makes the world go round? Good design that aims to serve people’s needs and more.
