Where do you get your design inspiration from?
Nature and people are two entities that inspire me to design new spaces. Watching families enjoying/relaxing in different kinds of places drives my inspiration.
How do you have fun at work?
I check in with my colleagues or doodle. Sometimes, I draw dementors in my AutoCAD drawings (mostly parking sections).
If you had a superpower to make a bigger impact on communities/ cities/ or environments what superpower would you have?
I want to have the power to change the minds of people (for everyone’s advantage). Along with that, I want the power to have fully grown trees in a matter of minutes so I can go around the world casually to plant them.
