Within professional field of architecture I specialize in BIM coordination and Revit modeling with emphasis on conceptual massing, building enclosure modeling, highly parametric custom family objects, adaptive components, visualization and training in architectural software. Having practiced in Ukraine, United States, China and United Arab Emirates I worked on single and multi-family residential projects, high-rises, retail planning, hospitality, higher education architecture collaborating on schematic design, design development, construction documents, 3D modeling, visualization and many other tasks. Currently I work in New York City primarily focusing on hospitality projects.

Having studied architecture for a long time I have a great appreciation of academic field for stimulating investigation of provocative ideas and challenging the entire notion of what architecture is. With each project I explored something different every time, learned new digital tools and analog techniques, turned abstract theories into conceptual designs, challenged vision of future architecture and pushed myself to the limit. Always searching for more I enhanced my architectural knowledge collaborating with departments of engineering, computer graphics and human ecology which gave me a limitless perspective of how much more is still out there to be invented.

While most of the time I’m absorbed by professional work, I still like to find time for design competitions, studying new architectural tools and sharing it through tutorials. Occasional free time is also spent on photography endeavors which help in taking a step back to appreciate beauty of existing things, develop a critical eye for light, color, form and composition which.
