About 

MY MISSION IS TO CREATE VISUAL & SPACIAL EXPERIENCES

Before architecture I worked in publishing, handling all aspects of the photo shoots for popular magazines such as In Style, & Women’s Health.

After gravitating towards a career that had a more direct impact on our environ- ment, I transitioned to architecture. Since then, I worked in new construction school buildings, luxury interiors for workplace and retail environments and high end residential renovations.

With each project I strive to work diligently to bring the client’s vision from concept to reality.
