About me

I am a methodical and thorough person but also rather creative and visual.

One of my goals is never to lose sight of the big picture and understand a project as a whole.

I have been living in between two worlds – architecture and design – for a while and the combination of these two realities has proven to be a plus in my projects.

My communication skills and experience dealing with different clients make it easier for me to integrate a team and embrace different projects.

I like challenges and I am always eager to learn new things.
