I have been incredibly fortunate in life to see many places, to visit, live, and work in different countries and interact with a variety of cultures. This is what makes my work as diverse, experimental, and energetic as it is, always traversing a variety of scales and never exclusive. Adaptability follows, and with it comes a heightened sensitivity toward cultural values and modes of communication. I am concerned with identity and how we safeguard the quintessence of our lives in a world rapidly globalizing and leaving the slow things in the dust. I believe in artisans and makers, I believe in craft and story telling, that beautiful architecture comes from a sustainable process. I believe that beauty is felt and lived, not only seen and touched, and that the narrative of place and its creation is just as important as the spaces and objects we conjure in our minds.
