I have recently graduated from the Department of Architecture and Planning at the University at Buffalo, February, 2014 with a Master's Degree in Architecture. I appreciate good design that both inspires new ideas and challenges preconceived notions. I believe design should be functional as well as beautiful and I enjoy tremendously the process towards an architectural form. I like to approach a project from a number of angles that may include history, psychology, science, social studies, art, technology and culture. A layered understanding of a project offers nuances that enrich the total architecture and the experience of it.
