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

Architecture drew my attention with the churches of Italy where the craftsmen built with such thought and dedication. But it was only when I realized how buildings and design can impact people that I decided to pursue the profession.

What do you do?

I am an Architectural Designer at Overland Partners. I design and create solutions that impact people and the built environment.

What excites you in the work you do?

The interaction of people and space. How simple placements of walls, materials and light can influence how people interact, how they accomplish tasks, and how they relate to each other and the space.

What is your proudest professional accomplishment or achievement?

There have been many mini accomplishments and achievements. Navigating the profession, starting jobs, client meetings, first projects, CAs, CDs. Architecture feels like a constant of small achievements building to make a bigger one (no pun intended).

Connecting to the natural landscape, the house is constructed with rammed earth, and expansive floor to ceiling windows, terracing with the natural grade. The solid presence of the 2-foot walls coupled with the airiness of the high ceilings and light filtering in from apertures, it poetically reinterprets this ancient building technique into contemporary living.
