About 

I am a Spatial designer with a background in Architecture. My design principles are manifestations of overlaying function with layers of abstraction, emotions, and sensorial delights. I tend to push the boundaries of design by re-envisioning spaces beyond problem-solving, reconstructing traditional archetypes through the lens of the future. As a designer, I am interested in designing spaces for communities to foster the experiences of coming together to share, educate, exchange, and inspire.
