What inspired you to want a life in Architecture/creative industries?
Art school opened up a new way of looking at everything around me. It set me on the path of curiousity and to learn to participate in
projects to improve the conditions of life. Understanding that we can add beautiful utility to our built environment.
Who inspired you in finding your path to Architecture and the creative industries?
Looking back, besides my love of drawing, it was my father, a quiet man with the hands of a prolific maker. He brought home discarded machined parts and transformed them into useful objects of beauty. Art school provided me with an open mind, creative growth, and accepting the associated responsibility for any output. My mantra for design is: Find purpose. Add value.
How you unlock obstacles and overcome bias in your work?
What improvements do you feel are required to promote effective change in the academic and working environment?
It begins with awareness and concentration to stimulate minds and encourage participation for a solid grounding. In the workforce, one must participate, collaborate, and contribute for a better world through our built environment. Offer shining examples to inform current creative endeavours.
