Well hello there world, my name is Eddie Espinoza Villa and my interest in Architecture stems from my experience as a child living in sub-standard conditions in the East Side of Long Beach, California. Instead of letting these conditions consume me, I propelled myself out of that environment and became evermore motivated to use Architecture as a vehicle for making significant change in other people’s lives with similar experiences as mine. While i did grow up in an under-privileged environment, I would not have changed that for anything in this world. The “hood” really humbled the individual that I would grow to become and my experience in the “ghetto” was a rich one filled with invaluable lessons that I would later grow to embrace. Thanks for taking some time to browse through this blog and all of your feedback is always welcomed!
