WHY

  
  “I became an architect because, as a student, I enjoyed math and art. To me, both are problem-solving: math through analytical process, and art through creative endeavors. The problem is to create excitement, harmony, or order.

The journey I go through to make spaces is a therapy like no other, and having this as a career is the best thing that has happened to me.

True Architecture seeks to create enriched life experiences for everyone, and thoughtful design crosses disciplines from 2D graphics to small objects to Interior Design to Architecture to Landscape... and beyond.

SGAO was founded to provide experiences rather than enclosures. I want every user to feel motivated, inspired, and confident in the spaces we create and I believe that every project deserves to be mindful no matter the mundane constraints of budget and time.”
