Show my name on the attendees list for events I am attending:
I hold a Master of Architecture degree from the Harvard Graduate School of Design. My graduate thesis work focused on the issues of sustainable living in the context of extreme climate conditions such as sea level rise and storm surges and produced a new prototype for farming and water management in the Netherlands. Prior to Harvard I have had an opportunity to study fine arts at the Ecole Nationale Superieure des Beaux Arts in Paris, France and at the Mass. College of Art and Design, Boston where I began to focus on architecture.
My experience also includes architectural training at the offices of such visionary architects as Sir Norman Foster in London and Rem Koolhaas in Rotterdam where I was involved in a number of cutting edge architectural proposals.
My interests reside at the intersection of design and technology for innovative and educational user experience and social benefit, including interactive design, sustainable architecture, extreme climates, space travel and new geographies as well as in graphic design and special effects in film making .
