March Member Spotlight:

Where do you find design inspiration?
I love observing how peers in studio approach design problems and hearing their ideas, as well as viewing the works of alumni, upper division students and professors.

If you could have one super power, what would it be and why?
I would highly appreciate the power of global teleportation of myself and objects I carry or people I’m touching. My family often sends boxes to relatives in the Philippines, and I can just imagine how much easier that process would be. Additionally, almost everyone I know would like to travel somewhere, and I’d be more than happy to provide them that opportunity without the obstacles of finances and time.

What is your go-to Karaoke song?
“Build My Life” by Pat Barrett

What has been your most rewarding project?
“The Lemniscate” was an architectural studio midterm project presented at the campus library exhibition and, unintentionally, at a local NOMA event. Creating and presenting the project helped me realize the importance of taking that first step towards approaching others, making friends, and taking opportunities I wouldn’t normally take. I would not have made it as far as I have had I declined taking those first steps.
