I have attended the best Canadian architecture programs, at McGill University and the University of Manitoba, graduating both with highest standings. Being very fortunate to work with renowned academic figures in both schools, I have developed an in-depth theoretical grounding as well as practical competency. ¬
I believe in architecture as being much the act of crafting as the theoretical aspects.  As an essential principle in nourishing my architectural intellect, I’ve always been involved in the act of making in an undetermined generative design process sense. I believe in the extraordinary event achieved through having an active dialogue between the creator and the work; an exchange enabled through utilization of physical and/or computational design processes.
Rooted in my previous engineering studies, the material system dimension of architecture has always been of special interest to me. Having exposure to University of Manitoba’s Centre for Architectural Structures and Technology laboratory (C.A.S.T) took such interest to a greater level. Thereafter, and throughout my research and work I have investigated innovative uses of building materials and assembly, pushing the boundaries of building design and technology.
