About 

I am a qualified architect with 3+ years of working experience in the field. Most of my work has been with individual residential projects. However, post my master's degree in Lithuania, I worked for a company as part of a team dealing with tasks for a chain of global fast-food restaurants. I found my niche in the commercial aspect of architecture. 

Over my years of experience in the industry professionally and academically, I have gained the following experience:

- Extensive work professionally and academically with 2D and 3D modelling, annotative detailing, filing and creation of technical drawings with accuracy using AUTOCAD, REVIT Architecture. 

- Professional and Academic material detailing in 2D and 3D using REVIT Architecture. 

- Professionally and academically for the creation of complex 3D structures and spatial analysis models using SKECTUP. 

- Professionally for the creation of realistic exterior and interior renders using daylight and artificial lighting using LUMION (specifically for residential and study projects) and ENSCAPE with REVIT (For commercial projects which have a lot of graphic load). 

- Academically exposed to ARCGIS data analysis using node maps of cities and the use of TABLEAU for data structuring. 

As an individual, I love creating an organised framework where it does not exist and working to fit into one where it does. I have noticed that this is possible with commercial projects and project management, and I look to gaining more experience in such an atmosphere.  I believe in mutual growth and learning of the company and individual.
