About 

I'm a young professional with a European degree in architecture who's been working in the retail industry for the last 5 years, mostly as an architecture Tenant Coordinator with two of the largest European shopping center developers. This experience got me in contact with many commercial retailers (from large fashion to food chains) and shaped my idea of what keeps the industry rolling, what the SWOTs are and what architects can do to secure their clients' satisfaction over an ever changing market.

I also had the chance to see things from the retailer's perspective while designing and naturalizing the concept of two major shoe retails for the Romanian market, through a small architecture studio I helped establish with 3 other colleagues 5 years ago.

My other projects include residential, administration and commercial design.

Starting January 2012 I moved to NYC and joined the USGBC - NY Chapter - as a Green Associate. Currently looking forward to work with like minded professionals in sustainable design and quality, material and energy efficient architecture.
