Architecture first pulled me in by pulling me out of my head. It pushes me to be aware of how I experience and relate to the world around me. It poses questions and problems that I feel motivated to explore and answer.
Having grown up in Bali, in a house open to nature, on an island where nature has an inescapable presence, I have a great respect for the natural environment and a feeling of responsibility towards it. Thus my ultimate goal is to be able to contribute to spaces that move and shelter it's inhabitants both emotionally and physically, while having the shelter itself have as little impact on the environment as possible. I do what I do both on and off work, to learn thinking, working and making processes that can help me achieve that goal.
Current sources of excitement: moving (anything from running to traveling to cycling), the reemergence of mountains on the horizon, viewing the world from different heights and angles and the reminder of how small we are when standing by a large body of water.
