Aspiring architect, designer, writer, teacher. Four years working experience.

I believe in:

  • Having an equal mix of humor and passion
  • Taking risks when it counts
  • Not taking yourself too seriously
  • Embracing the complex way cities will develop over the long term
  • Emphasizing the psychological aspects of architecture
