About 

I am a 27 years old  Italian architect, passionate about architectural design, construction design and urban planning. I have lived in Addis Ababa for the past four years, working for an Ethio-Italian firm as Junior Architect.  I joined the Archinect community to seek for new job opportunities in the architectural field.

I am a very social person, a good team player and a hard worker.  After three years working in Italy and four years working in Ethiopia, I would love to have the chance to work in the USA but, as I really like to explore new cultures, I am willing to consider job offers all over the world.
