Vance A. Cunningham. I have been attracted to the idea of how things assemble and transform since an early age. After committing to architecture, I began my pursuit of that dream. I understand the importance of symphonic approach and also being a composer of systems. I believe many things I do transcend the label of one profession and resist limiting myself to facets. I have learned to create medleys in various mediums to achieve creative goals.
