The activity and the space require eachother, and with each ‘happening’- they find a new definition of their existence. It is a vast integration of the living and the non-living, creating indefinite number of concoctions on each occasion- I am interested in these alternating scenarios and their in-put into our lives, for I believe to its power, consistently changing our habits, minds, and the future.

I enjoy- meaning-making, intersections and transformation, simplicity in complexity and (sometimes) the complexity in simplicity. I am interested in adaptation, generative design, sustainability and structural timber. I plan to do further studies to specialize at some of these subjects in the near future.

I would like to think of myself as a hard-working individual, a self-motivator, learner, a ‘can do’-er and problem solver with a practical mind and eye for detail.

In my free-time- I read, run, climb and practise martial-arts. I am interested in photography and visual-communication design, philosophy and sociology.
