I´m an Italian/Brazilian architect since 2008,when I started my career working with architecture in different scales.

My professional experience includes designing buildings for industrial and commercial sector in California, where I worked on master plans, space planning and detailing for large scale projects. I also have a background working as an Architect / Project Manager, developing projects in the residential and commercial sector in Brazil, working from the conceptual design until the detailing and the documentation phases for refurbished and new constructions, as well the experience working on projects involving master planning and urban recovery in Italy and Russia, during the past three years. Currently, besides working as a freelance architect, planning, detailing and producing as built documentation for refurbishment and construction companies, I’m an active member of the research group known as IMM Design Lab Milano, working on research projects involving multi-scale architecture, environmental performance, design for energy efficient building and landscape/urban recovery in Brazil, Serbia, Italy and New Zealand.

Due my daily tasks, I developed strong skills in researching, surveying, preparing diagrams, reporting, planning, detailing, presenting and scheduling projects using software such as AutoCAD 2D and 3D, graphic software as Photoshop and CorelDraw, rendering software as Artlantis as well good experience using other programs applied for urban design such as Depthmap and ArcGIS. I have developed also knowledge using software such as Ecotect Analysis, Google Sketchup and Autodesk Revit.

As educational background, I hold a Degree in Architecture and Urban Design obtained by the Santa Catarina Southern University in Brazil as well I submitted in April 2015, my thesis in Sustainable Built Environment to earn a Masters Degree in Architectural Engineering from the Politecnico di Milano.

My major interest as an architect is to find different ways to use and to do architecture and civil engineering, more sustainable, more efficient, more economic and, if possible, more simple.

Currently, I´m looking for new possibilities to develop more my career and especially for chances to join a challenging environment.
