Growing up in three different continents & coming from a multi-cultural hybrid family, I’ve been fortunate enough to be exposed to varied aspects of the built environment from a young age. With that & working in architecture, I’ve been able to fine tune my creative perspective to be sensitive in regards to space, time, people & place. I can be found working in all mediums of design but champion for inclusivity, purpose & connection in my work. When not designing, I'm involved with community building (I co-founded Brown Girls Food Club), mentoring marginalized youth & giving into my multipotentialite tendencies

My long term obsession has been researching the links between food heritage, identity & immigration;  a topic that surfaced from my own journey of placing roots within a third culture diasporic upbringing
