“I had the great opportunity to grow up and travel throughout Asia, Europe, and the Middle East. I appreciate cultural influences on the practice of architecture, and how as profession we incorporate our expertise into a regional context. I am excited by the opportunities to bring what we have learned on our international pursuits to inform our work in the United States.”
