A wanderer by nature, with roots in South East Asia and upbringing in the U.S, I am constantly observing and critiquing how we define space and the way we build. .

Besides living, breathing and loving Architecture, I like to learn about other cultures as well as learn new languages. I am fluent in English, Bengali, Hindi and now am picking up Scandinavian languages (primarily Swedish). Languages and Culture often drive my design concepts as well as define me as a well rounded, adventurous individual.
