About 

I am a dynamic and diligent architect. I possess advanced technical and computer skills with advanced knowledge of Auto CAD, Microsoft Office, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe InDesign, Adobe Illustrator, SketchUp, 3ds Max, Revit and other graphic programs. I have experience in graphic visualizations and that is my strong point.
As a graduate of the Architecture and Urban Planning program at the University of Technology in Krakow
(RIBA accredited), I acquired the knowledge in the field of urban planning, construction and preservation of historic buildings. Working as collaborator / research assistant at the Columbia University Laboratory for Architectural
Broadcasting [C-Lab]  has further broadened my experience and enriched the research skills that I have acquired both at university and during previous internships.

I can positively contribute to the success of your company, and contemporary design projects related to urban planning and architecture lie in my areas of interest. While working on my senior project located in New York City (a vision of the revitalization of Liberty State Park's waterfront), I spent a lot of time honing my skills in making urban analyses and
patterns, looking for the new urban structure and the logical integration of all factors that together create a reliable master plan. Additionally, urban planning workshops at the University of Delft in the Netherlands provided me with
experience in efficiently and quickly working on extensive projects together with a team.

From my experiences in Futurepolis and NDA Group in China where I have been an architect / urban designer and had responsibility of project leader as well. I took the lead in not only managing myself but staff and consultants and to some degree clients too. I determined the deadlines not only for myself but also for my team. Many times I participated in interviews and shared opinions about candidates with HR Manager. My biggest achievement in architecture field was Fuzhou Exhibition Center Yacht Club winner project. As a Project Leader I am proud of winning competition for NDA Group and expecting to see it constructed at the future.

 

I am not afraid of confronting problems and have skills to solve them, thanks to my academic competencies as well as my high level interpersonal skills. I am responsible yet spontaneous and have been recognized as one who embraces creativity and new ideas.
