My hunger for design is driven by belief that every project or space, big or small, can have a unique design solution. Growing up in a family of architects, I played with architectural models as a child. This interaction with building forms and design at a very young age, inspired me to join the architecture and design profession.

I enjoy my travels across the globe as well as my regular hikes which bring me closer to nature.Travelling to different countries, observing local architecture and experiencing different cultures has broadened my perspective on architecture and creation of spaces for people.
