What inspires you?
Going to the mountains and feeling their seemingly eternal presence and indifferent attitude, all while observing the relentless forces that continuously erode them.
What is the best part of your job?
Knowing that we can have an impact through design. We have a chance to create better spaces for people, to encourage healthier lifestyles and connectivity to nature, and to do our part in the long road to protecting our global environment. In short, embracing our huge responsibility towards sustainability.
What is the most important thing you’ve learned so far?
Knowledge, innovation, and creativity is strongest through teamwork and diversity.
The sky is the limit: if you could design or redesign anything, what would it be?
I would redesign the urban transportation corridors to encourage city dwellers to commute by foot or by bike. Most importantly, emphasis would be placed on the continuity and connectivity of self-powered commuting corridors to prevent the dangerous, fragmented, and inconsistent conditions that frustrate all commuter types.
