I studied interior architecture and environmental design in Brussels, Belgium for five years. Wanting to apply what I’ve learned, I worked at Kevin DeFreitas Architects in San Diego doing models, 3D renders, and collaborated with clients. Soon after, I joined Ice-Watch as their first designer doing 3D renders, exhibition planning, and contributing creatively to their new collection. Afterwards, I pursued a masters degree in interior architecture with a specialization in product design achieving first honors in the program.
As an interior architect with good qualifications and a strong desire to excel in the profession, I am confident that my management, architectural skills, and excellent team relations can benefit a new company. My experience includes creating conceptual designs, developing architectural ideas, plans and drawings as well as being attentive to the clients’ desires.
