Nurtured by building information systems but a designer by nature. I have 7 years experience in BIM implementation/visualization where I found a flair for FFE, styling, planning strategy in commercial healthcare, hospitality, and workplace. My work aims to apply design-thinking, biophilic planning, and impactful translation from concept to implementation in complex interior environments.
