About 

As an individual, I'm a father, husband, friend, thinker, dreamer, hard-headed, funny, introspective, co-operative, hard-on myself and I will always try to do my best. 

Professionally, I aspire to develop a career in design and construction where my creativity, insight, knowledge and experience can be challenged. 

Academically, to continue improving myself and impart on to others with an open mind.....If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you, But make allowance for their doubting too;.....

Architecturally, still trying to integrate all that I have learned from all of these whom I have that admired, while still being able to provide for my family.  I dream of Mead-to-Denary, Le Corbu to you know who!, Calatrava, Hadid, while still trying to understand what is my meaning of architecture. Continue to aspire and make the most out of every opportunity that gets presented and work towards the ones you wish to create.
