Besides the fact I’ve always imagined myself as a pediatrician, I had a kind of special interest for floor plans since I was a child. But it was in 2004 that my life took a whole new perspective. I decided to go to college in 2005, as a Bachelor Degree candidate for Interior Design. From that moment on, things have never stopped. I’ve been working with interior design for almost 5 years now, with focus on residential area. Apart from my freelance projects, from 2008 until now, I’ve been working for a company called Teresinha Nigri Basiches, helping in the creative processes, drafting spaces and every kind of technical drawing, not to mention site measurements, budgets and everything else regarding to an interior design project.

In the end I can say I’m a motivated and passionate Interior Designer, driven by challenges with great creativity and flawless capacity of development focusing on functionality and aesthetics.
