My architectural education offered me an outlook on various prospective of architecture and urbanism with social and cultural values. I am a curious person who is inquisitive about cities and people and passionate about art. The same character of mine has developed my keen interest in the interrelation of art and design. I have been trying to explore the same since I started making sense of it and I would want to be persistent in exploring it. Architecture is the field that has been bridging the gap between city planning and urban design and is closely related to the human aspects of urbanism. I believe that it is the zest and zeal that can modulate individual passion into a wave of enthusiasm for execution. Change is inevitable and the only constant. Accepting and yet innovating remains my core idea of growth and development. The encouragement required to keep the zeal burning can be best gathered by the empowerment of education. I am a certified Architect in India and am currently on the path of getting my license in the United states - working as an Architectural Designer and exploring the field of design with utmost dedication have shaped me into a person who is passionate, curious, and persistent.
