What made you want to be a Designer?

I pursued architecture because I have always enjoyed drawing and making since childhood. I believe as a designer/future architect I have the chance to always exercise my creativity as well as my problem-solving skills resulting in work never being monotonous and always a challenge.


How has KCCT helped you in your career development?

KCCT is my first job after graduating from graduate school and my experience here has been filled with a great professional atmosphere with mentors that always take time to offer guidance. Since I am fairly new here at KCCT, I have been exposed to the various phases of architecture, and Mo (my project manager) has always taken the time to teach and explain topics that I am not well-versed in.  


What project are you most proud of at KCCT? Why?

I have worked on a few projects since starting, but I would have to say that I am most proud of our project in Kinshasa since that is a project that I have had the chance to work on since day one.


What motivates you at work?   

Something that motivates me is the constant problem-solving that is involved with architecture because I have always enjoyed a challenge.


What is your most-used productivity hack?

I am a big proponent for lists and find that checking off items on a list can help keep me motivated and productive at work.


What do you like to do in your free time? Or hobbies?   

Some of my hobbies include photography, hiking, woodworking.
