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

My childhood friend & I were discussing our future goals while we were 5 or 6 years old & he mentioned that he wanted to be an Architect. After learning that I can use artistic skills to design buildings, I decided that I would be an Architect too.

What do you do?

I manage the design process of fleshing out our clients’ visions for their projects using sketches, AutoCAD files, Photoshop and 3D modeling.

What excites you in the work you do?

The process of integrating artistic expression and essential data from our clients in the creative process of developing three dimensional forms for the use of people is very exciting to me.
