An Architect with an interest in all things related to urban planning and how a city develops and changes constantly . An other interest is the design and presentation aspect  of Architecture, taking  one idea and to nourish and develop into a viable project  and representing that project in a way where you can express the meaning and intention of it to people outside the design team .I'm passionate about Architecture and the impact it can produce.
