About

In my life, I've traveled to a lot of places, met a lot of people and been many things. From a Baker in Canada; to a Bamboo Builder in Costa Rica; to a Landscaper in England; to a Web Designer in Switzerland. My passion for life and experiancing new things has always overpowered any fears I might have about trying new things. At the core of most of my decisions are three main principles:

  • Passionate for Sustainability and having a positive impact on the planet
  • Obsessed about System Thinking and understanding the interconnection of disiplines
  • Constantly Learning new skills, and applying to real world projects.

Feel free to have browse through my recent projects, read some experiments or blog posts and if you have any questions you can contact me directly via the form below or via social media.
