I started the Southern California Institute of Architecture five years ago and during my education as a student I understood two things very clearly, process and accountability.  A process exists to define a strict set of limitations and boundaries, whether those are precedented or unprecedented. With all forms of process comes an accountability that the moves and systems at play fall between its confines, yet still has to express the desired creative intent. When the systems merge together, process and form, the true meaning becomes defined. The first five years were the proving grounds that insured that I had all the necessary tools to step on stage, from scale, to narration, to research, to form, and how they all tie together.  Now that I learned how to tie the knot, I can focus more clearly stepping into my carrer where my interests are, which live in the way the worlds harshest environments respond to a new bold architecture.

Since my education is finished, the history of SCI ARC, I see my professional career leading me into becoming a voice, a designer, and simply me.
