About 

I am freelance designer, passionate about sustainable and renewable architecture. Currently I work as a drafting manager for a developer. I oversee projects from the design aspects, execution and finalization.   In addition, I have collaborated with artist and architecture designer on various artistic shows. If anyone need a volunteer hand I am always available. I have a focus in renewable and sustainable construction.  As the environment changes and global warming is an eminent problem. We have to start designing  environments that can adapt to these changes and at the same time help reverse the causes of global warming. I have also focused on the study of accessible housing for regions where wars and terror have displaced millions. Lastly, I am working on a self-producing water modular housing systems for areas where access to water is limited.
