CV

The future of architecture rests upon the increased awareness and practice of adaptive reuse and sensible, efficient new design. My professional and academic careers, in various industries, thus far have given me the skills and motivation to design with an emphasis on tectonics, aesthetics, and environmental sensibility. I can put my mind to any task and always strive to learn new skills.
