I try to focus my design and interests in architecture on being inclusive. I observe, challenge, and design (at least try) ways where architecture is creating an inclusive environment. Not just for people but for nature and animals as well. I see sustainability in architecture as a starting point to really engage the environment with people, but there is still a lot more work. I have an interest in understanding how other societies are embedded in the animal life cycle rather than pushing them away when buildings are constructed on a site. I am also interested in how to design for communities that can enhance the culture, history, and people of the region. I have a strong interest in how architecture can bring different elements together to interact with one another and establish a symbiotic ecosystem of multiple backgrounds and scale.
