Practicing architecture has been a process of unlearning and search rather than of any expression or
achievement. Indigenous materials, techniques and locally appropriate aesthetics excite me. To bring these techniques in the mainstream rather than patronizing them as alternative is my dream.

Off the feild, I am best descibed as a geeky Revit + Sketchup + 3ds Max user.
