With a background in landscape architect, urban designer and urban planner, I thrive in the conceptual and schematic design phases of a project. I enjoy the challenge of working with international urban complexities and strive to make bold designs that respond to social, cultural, and environmental contexts. In the face of climate change and rapid urbanization, I believe that we have no choice but to integrate resilient and equitable solutions into architecture and planning.
