About 

Our houses, our offices, stores, galleries, every single structure in the world we live in once existed only in the mind of an architect. Then they became part of us, part of a city, and that is the incredible power of architecture that has been haunting me ever since I learned to spell architecture. 
My passion for the field drove me to Georgia Tech, where I got a BS in architecture. I am currently working as a designer at Wakefield Beasley & Associates. Along this path I've come to have a better understanding of what it takes to turn an empty space or an unpleasant design into a structurally functioning, welcoming, beautiful space; in other words, the process of design and construction. I've learnt to visualize design concepts for myself and then use my drafting and software and even fabrication skills to help others visualize them too. 
I am constantly seeking new challenges along this path, different experiences in different fields of architecture. I strive to approach innovative solutions with interdisciplinary tactics. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you should know of design projects I can help you with.
