I consider myself a Neo-futuristic urbanist and designer. I believe in cities driven by eco-sustainability, ethical
values and implementing new materials and technologies to provide a better quality of life. Knowing that I am
contributing to something greater than myself and making a positive impact is a strong motivational force for
everything I do. I am stimulating, resourceful and creative. I believe in an Ecomorphic design ideology. The term
Ecomorphic describes buildings that mimic natural systems and reconnect people to [the spirit of] nature.
Similar to the spirit of a place, "genius loci." Honor the complexity of the natural world & embrace living in
harmony with the environment through Holistic Management. Holistic |ho

listik| adjective, chiefly Philosophy:


Characterized by comprehension of the parts of something as intimately interconnected and explicable only by
reference to the whole.
