About 

My passions lie in all fields of design. I particularly like integrating technology with architectural applications that have a direct correlation to the user and their experience. With that in mind, I am highly motivated to design not only for our [human] well being, but also our environment. Through innovative emerging technologies, a study of indigenous materials and various construction methods, I am dedicated to humanitarian architecture in all realms of our planet, particularly third world countries. I plan on furthering my education with this focus in mind and apply it at a physical, environmental, social and economical scale in order to mitigate any hardships and move to an era of equality of living standard.
