Buildings are much more than the structures we occupy. They are where we gather, interact, create relationships and memories.

I am an architect with a deep interest in people and how our environment shapes the world we live in. I help clients design environments, but in the end I help them create experiences. Experiences that go beyond the built environment to encompass digital and human connections.

I joined Eight Inc.’s San Francisco office in 2004 and was promoted to Studio Director of our Singapore office where I helped establish Eight Inc.’s Asia presence. There I was responsible for building a new team, as well as the development and execution of customer experiences for some of Eight Inc.’s key accounts across the region. Just a few of our clients include Apple, Citibank, Lincoln and Globe Telecom.

Active listening and a deep sense of empathy are key to developing successful relationships, projects and meaningful experiences. This approach has helped me work across traditional discipline boundaries and cultures, on a variety of project types and scales.

Recently I have moved back home to San Francisco where I am Principal of Environments.
