After successful experiences as a full-time member of several ambitious offices, I decided to offer a more flexible collaboration with architectural studios that I want to work with. I am aware that offices face intense periods of work, dealing with several new projects and competitions that require more staff for only a few weeks or months. Therefore, I offer to work with you with a real freelance approach for competitions and graphical research.

Throughout my experiences I have been able to experience intense periods of competitions work at LANORG, or more recently with MangerNielsen architects, where I offered fast and creative design research and refined graphical content. I get stimulated and offer my best work in new environments, having the possibility to work with new people and getting in touch with several approaches to architecture. I am excited to expand my architectural practice, with aspiration and ingenuity. My curiosity and responsiveness, are my best assets to integrate in a new firm during a demanding period of time.
