As a designer and creator of the built environment I feel I have the responsibility of not
only producing functional, aesthetically pleasing entities but also the innate duty of creating
works that are able to reach into the depths of our psyche. My ultimate goal is to create
buildings that begin to generate a more intimate relationship between humans and the built
environment. I bring to the table diligence, inspiration, hard work and above all passion and
with these traits I look forward to making a positive impact in any firm that I begin a relationship with.
