About 

As a registered EU/TCG Architect, an RIBA Part III Candidate and Architectural Technologist, I laid the foundations of my education after high-school with an Art & Design Diploma, an HND in Architectural Technology and a BSc (Hons) in Architectural Studies before doing my MArch completed in July 2012 and registering with TCG as an Architect. Now my primary interest lies in completing my RIBA Part III (expected Sept'14).

In my opinion Architecture can be found in every aspect of our life and that pushes me further to be as passionate, enthusiastic, committed, motivated and hard working as I am.

Both the experience in practice I had so far and my studies give me a sound knowledge of construction and sustainability techniques, enriched critical detailing skills as well as a solid understanding of the building regulations and their implementation on design, to a level that allows me to work through the vast majority of the work stages with a collaborative work ethic and with minimum or no supervision.

I also possess excellent organizational skills, I am a keen draughtsman both by traditional hand drawing and CAD form (using various software packages), with strong graphic, desktop-publishing and model-making skills, which have been utilized in practice.
