How did you first learn about architecture and when did you decide that built environment profession was an area of interest for you?

From as early as I can remember, I was fascinated by the built environment and drawing. I enrolled in a drafting course in high school and then gained knowledge that architecture was an actual means of drawing and getting paid. I didn’t turn back.

What do you do?

I listen, collaborate and work with the intent of creating places that strive to make the world better. I still draw a lot.

What excites you in the work you do?

Changing perspectives, creating something from nothing and representing communities.
