About 

Architecture without exploration is life without oxygen. I admire people who shatter boundaries and seek knowledge like water.

I enjoy creating spaces and products that captivate one's presence and engage the imagination. I am available for consulting and contractual work in the architectural and design industries, with a special interest in full-time employment in an architectural environment that shares my love for craft, detail, and sustainability.
