Compared to most architects, my path toward architecture was somewhat non-traditional. I have always been interested and involved in the arts and my academic career wound its way through fashion design and art history until eventually arriving at architecture. Now in my professional career, it’s clear that architecture is the perfect synthesis of all of my interests organized into real-world application.
