3.5yrs experience in residential and commercial interior design/ architecture, as well as in art and theatre stage design. This has allowed me to gain wide range of experience in design process from briefing through design development to project management on site.
I use problem as the answer to solutions, analytical and detail obsession, with strong graphical sence, passion for design and admiration for quirky yet settled designs. Functionality is equal to aesthetics that is joined by design geniousness.
