I am fascinated with the complexities of life. It offers the need to see life in many different ways; Philosophy, psychology, sociology, behavioral sciences, and art. These are branches I have discovered through the multidisciplinary reach of architecture. Architecture allows for me to see these different views, to try and understand it as much as possible and then dream a world of space and time with movement as the protagonist. We are product of our environment. I dream for a beautiful one.


iTekDimensions, Manila, PH, Architectural Scale Model Intern

Reviewed architectural drawings/3D models then extract information into CAD layouts to be sent for laser cutting. Projects range from residential scaled models to high rise site developments. Each project had it's own scale and attention to detail which required the understanding of relationship between material to be used and desired scale of a project.

De La Salle – College of Saint Benilde School of Design and Arts, Manila, PH, BArch, Architecture

As students within the Architecture program we were trained to be responsible designers. It was a must to understand before any architectural intervention the question of "why do we need this?".

Our minds had to understand this base idea before any design solution were to follow. Identify the correct problems, deconstruct the issue to it's core identity and then does design iteration begin.

With this approach of design thinking, there was a development the sensitivities towards other design disciplines and social interactions. It became a need to see things holistically but attentively towards the details. How will this design grow for the present but transcend as time continue?
