About 

I am very interested in the role of technology in architecture and how it can be leveraged to create unexpected and unique user experiences. Advancements in blockchain technology, manufacturing (3D printing and milling), virtual reality, augmented reality, and projection mapping is now creating even more layers for innovative architectural solutions.
