  • Why architecture?
  • I have always leaned into the creative and architecture always appealed to me because it is the ultimate creative field in which to not only create, but also contribute in a direct and meaningful way to the environment we inhabit, and improve the quality of life of the people impacted by it.
  • What is the greatest risk you’ve taken?
  • Moving from Puerto Rico on a whim to find a job in Chicago.
  • What are you most passionate about in your profession?
  • The schematic design aspect, where we come up with new and innovative ideas to a given problem, but also tied with the development of making the design function through the study of details to make any given design a reality.
