As a child, I would draw and build anything and everything. In addition to a vast model-making collection, I would play around in the homes being constructed in our neighborhood, always curious about how the spaces felt and how you moved around in the home. I would also have my parents drive me around Houston only so I could take photos of new high-rise buildings that were springing up along the skyline. At night, I would memorize all of the statistics of each and every high-rise building in Houston, not to mention the whole country.
I was then inspired to enter the field of architecture and after thirteen years of training, successful design and management of high quality projects with prominent architecture and interiors offices in Houston, I decided it was time to channel my hard work ethic into my own firm, Masa Studio Architects. It along with my art studio, Masa Studio, has kept me focused on my core dreams of creating wonderful buildings, spaces and artwork that delights and enhances the human experience.
Early in my career, I had a habit of passionately designing and detailing everything, mostly because I feared getting "change orders". I'd ask a lot of questions, and always look at things from another perspective. However as I gained more experience, I realized the extra effort gave me an acute understanding of the issues, what the problem was and how to solve it. It has become a hallmark of my work since and I know we will surpass your expectations.
