About 

 I am fascinated by elegant streetscapes, American city structures and urban spaces which people can draw inspiration from. I view the city-center as a inspirational and cultural museum for inhabitants. The bulk of my experience is in master planning, urban renovation and historic preservation although I have considerable experience and recognition in architectural buildings and interior design. I believe in the renewing power of sustainable design and I seek to work with a firm which recognizes the importance of environmental responsibility.
