"Creativity is intelligence having fun" - Albert Einstein

A fresh graduate from Sheridan College's Architectural Technology program. A highly organized, polite and efficient individual, whose thorough and precise understanding of building sciences, has yielded great results. I believe in function, form, and aesthetic through the application of building science principles. My goal is to help better shape the built environment through sustainable and accesible design standards, therefore creating beautiful and functional architecture.
