I am a designer embracing the chaos of the world we live in, trying to put ideas in motion.
I am always on the quest to extract value from ideas, concepts and methods in design, as well as in other disciplines that find relevance in our built environment.

I am obsessed with the implications of urban, social and cultural systems applied to architectural investigations and the relevance of space for people

Design is an iterative process, and am enjoying the ride.
