When you remember your first project, what do you feel?
Well, I remember telling myself, “Finally! I’ve designed something with my name on it.”
One quality your team members must have?
Our team members must have the quality of being a storyteller, who is versatile.
The first thing that catches your eye when you enter a room (empty or not)?
The ceiling height always catches my attention.
What does your home say about you?
Quality, quality, quality. I want to go home where I feel comfortable and don’t need to
worry about a single thing.
Do you have an idol? How do you feel being someone’s idol?
I don’t have an idol, per se, but anyone who thinks differently than I would is considered
a mentor to me. Those who make a significant influence on the way of living are always
people I look to for inspiration and to enrich my vision.
How Arts & Crafts and Advanced technology will live together?
The more advanced technology becomes, the more we come back to the genuine
human touch of it.
“Those who make a significant influence on the way of living are always people I look to for inspiration and to enrich my vision.”
