Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
"A detached, observant, and indifferent man. I am constantly under
scrutiny by the society that surrounds me; that is okay. Don't walk
behind me; I may not lead. Don't walk in front of me; I may not
follow" -- Influenced by Albert Camus|George Sand
The quote represents my identity as an artist, a designer, and an
engineer, whichs translates into an imaginative, intransigent, and
As an extrovertible introvert, I prefer to observe, then act
accordingly, or not at all. I don't judge: I don't care enough. I
am more than willing to help others in need, but nothing of
humanity will leave me shocked or saddened.
Admittedly, I'm hypersensitive but equally as stoic: I filter most
things out, but it doesn't preclude the initial awareness.
Experience and observation have somewhat desensitized my
perspective toward society. You may think this is negative, but
it's quite the opposite: the eyes of a sentient, yet quixotic

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work on R&D projects for an early-stage SF A|E|C firm doing
design| material research| structural analysis on prefab, modular
prototypes. In other words, the dyson|ikea of architecture. I can't
say much more about it.
I co-teach two courses in structures for architecture grads and
undergrads at CAL.
I do contract work. At the moment, I work with an architect in
Oakland on two projects: one is in San Pablo; the other is in Mt
If you didn't deduce from the info above my background is in
compsci, architecture, and structural engineering from Lehigh
university and Cal.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Being incredibly good at everything, then messing it up, only to do
it all again, with perfection effortlessly. It's a cycle, it's
incessant; it's absurdly conducive to the stimulation of my
cerebellum. It's also half truth/half joke to highlight the
narcissistic perspective of this section.

I am looking for highly cerebral books on the human psyche and

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
The obvious: water, sunlight, and food
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
my portfolio and skillset (75% of the time); the real meaning of
life; philosophy; music; books that are conducive to enhancing
one's quality of being, intelligence, passion, etc;
computational/parametric design; BIM; the realization that society
is at the precipice of a dramatic change due to tech, and how this
affects my personal endeavors...
All the aforementioned can be, and most often is, coalesced into
one paradoxical mindset regarding my existence in the design
industry: to differentiate, optimize, and develop a niche, yet
continually adapt, evolve, and maintain general awareness to avoid
being lost in specialization.
The inventions, designs, and technological breakthroughs presented
in TEDTalks, and how I can reach that level in my profession.
A small portion of my mind focuses on the inevitable...
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Everywhere and nowhere - the paradox of life.
