I am passionate about choreographing experiences in a space. I believe it is the transforming experiences of the visitors that make our design a memory for the visitors to connect, to relate and to remember it by. A saying I identify with is "The journey is the destination". I have always tried to implement experiences along with functionality in my designs and through formal dynamics while pursuing Architecture.

I also believe that the journey to the destination is equally important as the destination itself. Functionality and pragmatism is achieved through inspiration from innovation and creativity.
