My passion for architecture is fueled by a sense of discovery and an eagerness to learn. Whether it is through reading, sketching, or traveling, I am constantly surrounding myself with inspiration. It is often in the most unexpected places that I learn something new about architecture. This is because, for me, architecture evokes an awareness and mindfulness of our surroundings and situations. My passion for architecture has led me to be multi-passionate about other subjects as well, such as art, science, and history, which interrelate with architecture to frame a multi-disciplinary approach to design.
