I had to find myself, to find what I was looking for so I started of my career as a fine artist, focusing purely on sketching, illustration , figure drawing mostly.
What fascinated me more was the space around the figure, sitting on the floor, on pedestals and tables amplified my perspectives and soon after I was introduced to architecture and a side of it I never thought existed; Exploring forms taught me the importance of the spirituality of a space and that is something I always keep in mind before designing.

My main inspirations have come from masters of concrete; Louis I Kahn, Carlo Scarpa and Tadao Ando and how concrete is eternal, permanent, for life. Architecture for me should be timeless and yet sustain the element of time, for me one does not have to start with complex forms to achieve complexity, layers and layers of simplicity can be used to achieve complexity.

In a world where architects like Zaha Hadid and Norman Foster are the masters of the profession there is no room for spirituality and mysticism in design, only innovation which is a great thing in some ways but for me its more about how each individual can associate with it, its more about showing people that your designs have heart in them.

Every corner, every nook has a significance, for me its more about feeling the essence, the silence, the noise and being a part of it.

That’s probably why nothing I design ever gets built. But I design for myself so I would classify myself as an architect but a struggling one.

Lastly I salute all the individuals who design and create, fearlessly; for me that is the biggest inspiration and challenge to better my work and myself
