I am a young architectural designer working at Porta Corcyrensis, fostering my curiosity and expertise in variety of scales. Among other aspects, I focus on renovations, design development, systems integration, accessibility assessment and code compliance.
In addition to pursuing architectural license, I enjoy helping other fellows who are at earlier stages of the same path. 
Having left my native Croatia at the age of 17 to pursue education abroad, I am well versed in communication and adaptation to different contexts and environments.
My fulfillment comes from being useful and resourceful to other people.
