I'm a very inquisitive being, I like questioning the norms and providing fresh alternatives. I looking forward to enrich and expand my perception of architecture.

Traveling has instilled new dimensions in the way I appreciate architecture and see cities. Consequently I aim to achieve through my design an architectural response that transcribes core values into built form, one that creates coherent contemporary architectural spaces that reflect a clear vision and are true to the materials and assemblies that compose it.
