Currently working as a Designer in New York City with a strong background in human-centered design approach and skills to execute it into experiential spaces. I believe in creating architectural experiences which will help engage people with their surroundings in their daily lives. This architecture will enhance their well-being and restore nature to its full capabilities, a culturally awakened architecture.
