Fellow of RIBA (FRIBA). US Citizen and Architect via EB-2 Exceptional Ability. Frank Lloyd Wright's Taliesin Fellow. Immigrant. Founder. Pioneer. Granddaughter of a 💜awardee and a Congressional Gold🎖️awardee (Public Law 114-265).
My ability to overcome challenging projects through game-winning "Hail-Mary-passes of architecture" resulted in sustained achievement of triple “firsts” within 20 years at every decade: In 2000 as first Taliesin Fellow from the Philippines at the Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture, then 10 years later as first recipient of the 2010 American Institute of Architects (AIA) ATHENA Young Professional Leadership Award, and in the subsequent 10 years as first Filipino American architect elevated as 2020 Fellow of the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA). If these demonstrate my ability to overcome challenges and underscore winning solutions, then just imagine what you can expect us to deliver together in the next decade for your initiatives!
