"My interest in architecture began as a result of my grandfather being an architect. I can vividly remember my fascination with his sketches, blueprints and hand-built models. As I began to travel the world as an adult, my exposure to diverse cultures opened my eyes to the vast world of architecture. From the Eiffel Tower to the Pyramids of Giza, I have had the opportunity to experience some of the most monumental structures ever created. I knew that I wanted to have a part in creating that lasting impression for others. It is extremely gratifying to see how form and function can be combined to create an engaging design."
