About 

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 pieces, and rebuilding it on my own terms, I can intuitively address any task.

 

Creativity in its varied forms has characterized my life since childhood. It provides meaning in my life. Architecture has become the professional vehicle through which I express my creative spirit. Above all I treasure those epiphanous moments when creative ideas form, when out of nothingness an innovative thought materializes. My thirst for creativity in large part drives my decision to pursue a career in Architecture.
