My background in architecture, interior design and project management includes working on apartment renovation projects and commercial interior design. I started as a furniture dealer, where I designed and delivered my clients premium Italian brands of kitchens, bathrooms and living rooms. I was working with Modulnova, Flexteam, Colombini, Cattelan Italia, etc. I also have experience with showroom management, where I was a sales assistant as well as an interior architect. I learned how to close deals, solve problems and about customer service in general. In addition I have extensive knowledge of making design presentations for clients and because of my great communication skills and the ability to speak other foreign languages, I work well with manufacturers abroad and with builders on sites. I am confident in managing and overseeing a project until both my client and I are completely satisfied with end results. My first position in the UK two years ago was a mix of design/sales project manager and FF&E expert at a multi-disciplined furniture manufacturer that makes luxury bespoke furniture for well known interior design studios. We covered residential, contract and hospitality sector in the UK and the Middle East. I currently work at a tech start-up for home improvements, as a senior renovation expert. I am basically the first point of contact with the new clients, where I sell our services/ products by designing a project for their house renovation (extensions, lofts, bathrooms). As a hobby I design websites and manage social media accounts for my friends, which is quite a passion of mine, since I enjoy visual and graphic related work. I have a minimum of 6 years of experience in interior architecture, specifically in the high-end real estate development sector.
