About 

I have worked in studios in London, Barcelona and Nancy, France that have provided valuable experiences in producing high quality technical drawings, developing physical and rendered 3D models, compiling detailed documentation for clients and liaising with m!anufacturers concerning materials and sustainable technologies.

I possess a variety of different skills that have contributed to my career development, however I consider three of these to be especially critical - creative skills, people skills and technical skills. Everyone has particular strengths and I feel integrating these together is an i!mportant ingredient to success.

In short, I am a reliable, honest and positive professional who enjoys working collaboratively and creatively in order to deliver an exceptional design service for my employer, colleagues and client.

House of Fraser, London, GB, Sales Advisor

Whilst continuing my final year studies I became a sales advisor at the House of Fraser and was able to join a completely different work environment.
