Since the day I knew how to hold a pencil I have been in love  with art. Besides, I have been curious about human behave and its surrounding environment. I quenched my thirst of this curiosity after I choose to see the world though the field of architecture. I feel lifted and free.I could also see those curious moments and thoughts I had was slowly unfolding in my eye. As architecture not only taught me to be creative and skilled with techniques and technologies but also helped me to analyze the issue of the problems and solve them with care and patience. It inspires me to be happy.

I take each project as a new challenge to give problem solving results like playing a jigsaw puzzle in a creative way. But my priorities during my design phase is to provide a better and healthier space for people whom I design for, even if it is for a short period of time.I take work as my responsibility not my duty. My design are more contextual with moderns style unless there is a different requirements.

I interpret Architecture as a reflection of its place, its surrounding context, and culture. To solve the spatial and functionality and how the world perceives it is complex artistry.

I have more than six years of experience in this field. My core interest is residence and hospitality design but I am open to any kind of projects that captivates my mind.
