“At first, I thought architecture is great because it is both art and science! After completing two architecture degrees, I realized it is computers that are both art and science.” That’s when I started to become an architect of digital products rather than “mortar and bricks.”

Inspired by words from Nicholas Negroponte and Gordon Pask
