About 

I am an architectural designer specializing in architectural design and exterior restoration of historic structures. Through my professional career I have gained experience running projects of different scales and sizes from contract through completion. 

My passion for architecture has always stemmed from a belief that buildings are physical manifestations of the past, present and future. They are human fabrications that shelter a society- shaping the way humans, cultures and histories are connected from motifs to periodical styles, developing and influencing one another over time. In my professional career, I strive towards creating buildings that not only retain building history, but challenge and cultivate new building and building material languages in an exciting way.

In my spare time, I love enriching my knowledge in the arts through exploring different cities, sketching, painting, dancing, piano and museum hopping.
