Describe your dream project.
I think I would really enjoy building an entirely new brand with a client. Creating an architectural representation of whatever their product, service, and company values are. I would love to help them grow their business into the vision they have for it using the skills I have developed while working in retail architecture and through my education.
How do you put a client’s goals before your own in a project?
I’ve been fortunate to find my goals heavily align with my main client. With the intense production rate and quantity of projects that they require, I see my goals of continuing to learn the business while collaboratively navigating the challenges posed to me.
What inspires you most about your field?
The average human spends something like 90% of their lives in the built-environment. I see being a contributing designer of the built-environment as an opportunity to help create a better world for people to live in. Architects coordinate so many facets of buildings, technology, and infrastructure; its humbling able to touch countless lives through informed design decisions.
