What does your firm do and any plans for the future? TSKP STUDIO is an architecture and interiors firm that designs places for people. It’s work includes educational, cultural, and governmental projects. As for our plans for the future, I believe they should be done in pencil. After all, things change.

Keys to success: Show Up. Listen. Offer a fresh perspective.

Did you have a mentor if so who & why? If not tell us about someone living or not who you admire: Well one mentor isn’t enough. I’ve been fortunate to have had a lot of mentors, people who were generous with their time and who were patient with me when I made mistakes.
