Art and design have always been an integral part of my life, thus it was no surprise to any who know me of my decision to pursue Architecture. Since graduation, I worked for 3 years in hotel design for various flags across the USA. For the last 3 years, I have worked in Commercial and Residential design in Angola, where I am the lead Interior Designer for my firm, gaining experience in construction administration as a Project Manager. Further to this, I am working on opening of an all inclusive design store in the USA to sell my designs in furniture, art, and jewelry, as well as interior services.
