About 

I have had 4.5 years of experience as a licensed architect doing all design and construction phases for high-end residential and retail architecture and interiors in the Philippines. Three years were under the architecture and interior firm, CS Architecture, while one and a halft year was for independent practice. In all previous professional work, I have positioned myself to be involved with thoughtful and refined work that can impact in the cultural sphere.
