In everything I do, I believe in leaving the world a better place through the power of human-centered & resilient design strategies. As an architect & humanitarian, I combine my love for design with my passion for community service, youth education, & leadership development.
I am a Senior Designer at Steinberg & the Champion of the “Disaster Preparedness & Resiliency” (DPR) initiative through AIA Pasadena & Foothill chapter. With over 10 years of experience in a variety of educational, residential, civic, & corporate projects locally and globally, I bring the holistic human-centered project delivery approach to the table, & focus on developing the client’s visions from idea inception, design implementation, through to construction completion.
I believe project success arises from cultivating personal relationships with my clients, through open communication, superior service & design excellence.
I grew up in Beirut, Lebanon & Toronto, Canada. I lived & worked in Los Angeles & New York City alongside admirable designers and architects, with intermediate travels to Beijing, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Seoul, & Mexico City. My first-hand experiences of war & peace in urban & suburban contexts have significantly shaped my understanding of the regeneration of people, culture, & the designed environment.
These experiences have instilled in me the desire to contribute back to my community through creative projects, events, education, & fundraising.
Thank you for stopping by.
