Once upon a time, I was an electrical engineer. Building circuits, debugging computer boards and writing computer code was my daily life. A few years ago, I decided to pursue my passion in the exciting field of architecture. After failing my first bid at graduate school, I went on to work for a prestigious watch company as an marketing associate. It was a great experience that allowed me to travel this vast country and to witness its architectural gems. Three years later, I decided to give architecture another try and now here I am, about to finish a 3 year master's program at Columbia University. I believe having such a diverse background has really helped me in my architectural work. Please visit my website to see for yourselves.
