About 

With six years of pre-graduate and six years of professional experience I have demonstrated skills in architectural design, project and construction management, client relations, office and team building.

I think then act. Good solutions take time because ideas reciprocate and evolve. Success depends on well thought out solutions not shooting from the hip. I always try to think outside the box and achieve usefulness of the aesthetics.

I have gained knowledge on commercial but mostly double storey residential projects, especially focusing on individually tailored home market, from architecture to interior design. All my roles have demanded good design skills, high level of detail, excellent organisation and time management skills, strong documentation and delivery skills. Having worked within architectural and building professionals I have developed good liaison skills with customers and contractors on all levels.
