Having pursued Masters in Architecture from University of Michigan, I am extremely passionate about design dealing with challenging concepts and shifting scales achieved through potential collaboration of various disciplines. I take great interest in material explorations, experimenting with spatial quality and proportions of the built form.

Having worked in architectural field for two and half year, I strongly believe that by rigorous investigation of programs and site context, and developing a transparent and thoughtful design process, we can transform constraints of a project into the design trajectory, exploring opportunistic overlaps between space, program, form, budget and materials.

My design ideologies entail design that leads to interaction between public and private spaces, create social networks, and works along the existing site ecology and economy.
