My particular interest in architecture is in contextual and experiential design. I enjoy experimenting with how site exploration could influence design. Exploring a site and all its qualities can open up really interesting conceptual opportunities; I often try to communicate this in my projects, and it’s why most of them confide conceptually to the site analysis. I also have a fascination for how humans observe space, and more specifically, how those experiences can potentially influence the sensory experience of the individual. Emotion is a powerful tool, and architecture that’s able to respond to those feelings can be quite powerful. It’s why I enjoy experiential drawings so much since they are a valuable representation of how a space could potentially feel and how a person could react to it emotionally. 

Aside from my curiosities in Architecture, I also find great interest in learning new things. Because of this I have fairly modest knowledge in many different subjects (e.g. aviation, roller coasters, phone and computer technology, trains, nature, etc.) I’m a jack of all trades but only a master of some; in some cases, I bring that knowledge into architecture to cultivate my own architectural creativity. I feel that reeling inspiration from outside of our profession can lead to new ways of looking at architecture!
