New York, NY, US



I’m a Project Architect in New York specializing in Building Information Modeling and 3D visualization by day, and a 3D artist by night.

With an immense passion for technology & design, I enjoy exploring the intersection of the two and the influence of tech on society and the built environment. 

Having worked in studios in the USA, UK, and Greece on hotels, luxury villas, schools, corporate interiors and healthcare facilities, I have had the privilege of experiencing a wide variety of the creative practice - both in design and management. 

I satisfy my insatiable thirst for knowledge in my spare time expanding my software skills while experimenting on personal creative projects. I have been tutoring privately on CAD + BIM for over 8 years, while creating video tutorials online as well as blogging for industry websites and magazines.

My goal is to empower humanity with adaptable forms and sustainable habitats through generative design, while being exposed to the cutting edge of contemporary computational technology.
