I have been working with companies since 2003 and in 2009 I founded my own office. I am experienced with projects at all stages, including exterior/interior design, construction detail design, project synthesis and 3D rendering/video presentations, which I was appointed and completed from synthesis to supervision on-site. I was also a team leader and member on several projects in the residential, retail, mixed-use, leisure, exhibition, museum and public sector. I have sound knowledge in restoration, adaptation, conversion, museological, and archaeological projects. I always give priority on quality, punctuality, clarity, organization and meeting project deadlines. I am very enthusiastic, creative and dedicated, as well as very competitive, as I believe that healthy competition compliments my personality and abilities. I also see myself as a perfectionist, with an excellent attention in detail, as I always strive for impeccable results.
