Voorhees, NJ, US



Educated at the University of Huddersfiled, a RIBA (Royal Institute of British Architecture) accredited institution and obtained both a Bachelors (Hons) and Diploma Masters in Architecture International.  Gained valuable experience by producing global projects under varying contextual issues in Spain, Holland, China, Malaysia, Greece, and USA.  Differentiating cultural significance and contextual requirements has allowed me to produce architecture that is unique to its location. 


My international experience has enabled me to build my own architectural approach that is led by the local needs, requirements, and impact of the proposed design in the local context and environment.  I strongly believe in a sustainable approach in architecture; not mere add-on technologies, but an in-built sustainable approach which addresses the needs of each individual project in terms of its context.           My philosophy is explored in further detail in my thesis titled; Nature + Technology = Solution?
