About 

As a designer, I'm constantly revisiting work, attempting to improve upon it, and injecting new meanings into artistic creations. Spaces need to be aesthetically designed with the purpose of solving problems, meeting the desires of its urban inhabitants and impacting the mind, to enable new thoughts to contribute to our structural evolutions. As a dancer, ballet has been an excellent training ground for an architectural career. Dance has taught me about the performance of human anatomy and the relationship between body movement and space. All this media and experiences inspire my creativity and shape my own vision and creative process. Now I am ready to contribute in the professional world.
