About 

I am an aspiring architect with an immense curiosity towards all the components of built environment. I find joy in deciphering the elements that create an experience. From a smaller planter in a room to the enormous roofs of airport terminals, all the components are various contributors of our built spaces, and I look forward to make the best new recipes from the constantly evolving personal catalog of these ingredients.
