As a designer,  I am passionate about the impact of my role in contributing to the progress of communities and preserving their culture. 

With an inclination towards architecture and public realm, I endeavor to shape spatial experiences and support communities with a resilient and people-centric design approach.

 I am interested to be part of different design phase including Schematic Design, Design Development and Construction Documents, working in collaboration with a participatory design process. I equally enjoy participating and have strong research and analytical skills, which I believe is essential for any project delivery.
