I am a Sudanese born US citizen, currently residing and working in New York, United States as a Sr. architect / LEED AP.
My family and I grew up in a village since my childhood in Sudan, where local villagers grow their own produce and built their homes with stones and mud using natural, bio-regional and ecologically sound materials, and despite utilities such as electricity, gas and domestic water were not available to villagers at that time, and sanitary systems and storm water management had not been developed yet; we were still united by shared ecological, social economic and cultural spiritual values. I have M.S in Green Building; and currently enrolled in the Ph.D. Degree in Ecological Design.
