WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE PART ABOUT YOUR MAJOR?

I love how many opportunities design provides. Not just architecture, but design in general. I don't just work on building design, I also work on composing layouts and posters, and I photograph landscapes and beautiful architecture. Design has so many applications that you can never get bored with. 

WHAT IS YOUR YEAR?

I'm currently a third year architecture student.

WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT STUDIO COLLECTIVE?

I love the networking aspect of it. Through Studio Collective, I've met so many students in tons of different majors, that I would never interacted with before. There are so many fun and interesting members that I would've missed out on knowing. I've also been in contact with many alumni through Studio Collective which has made me more aware of the possibilities that come from design. I've communicated with a blacksmith, a graffiti artist, a furniture designer, that all used to do what I'm doing now. 

WHAT DO YOU LOVE/HATE ABOUT YOUR POSITION?

Well, it's quite stressful haha, but that's just part of the job. Not everything runs smoothly, and that's just how it's going to be. But it's really gotten me to push myself to the limit. I've learned so much about myself by being president, and I really do enjoy managing such a unique team. 

IF YOU HAD TO PICK AN ANIMAL AS A SPOUSE WHAT WOULD IT BE AND WHY?

A dog. Because they'll love me no matter what time I come home from studio. 

WHAT DO YOU THINK YOUR SYTLE IS WHEN IT COMES TO DESIGN?

I don't know if you can say that I have one style. I appreciate so many different aspects of architecture and design that it's hard to just pick one. Recently, I've been into simplification, which is a real challenge to do sometimes. As for architecture, I'am extremely fascinated by the details in buildings. To me, that's one of the main aspects that makes an interesting building. Maybe it's just how the handrail is put together, how a sliding door works, or how a window opens and closes, but to me, those moments are the beauty of architecture. 

WHAT IS YOUR MOST EMBARRASSING MOMENT?

Answering that spouse question.
