As an architect who recently arrived in NYC from Germany, I’m looking forward to working here as a freelancer or employed. My experience in Germany was working on high-end residential and commercial buildings designing construction solutions with high approval from senior architects, supervisors, and clients. Before, I worked with single-family homes such as interior design such.

I have played an effective role in projects upwards of 800,000.00 ft² while building positive professional relationships with cherished colleagues. My flexibility, and ability to engage with different types of projects, assess proposals, and come up with constructive solutions - either individually or along with coworkers - are features that set me apart.
ARCHITECTURE SOFTWARES: preferable Revit or ArchiCAD, but AutoCAD is ok too. GRAPHICS: Photoshop, Indesign, and Figma.
