About 

During my employment at Gabellini Sheppard and Beckman Studios, as project designer, I was responsible for the design, coordination and execution of residential and commercial projects in New York. I lead the schematic design and design development, produced the FF&E specifications and ensured the construction quality and deadlines were met.

 

While at HOK/BBG-BBJM, as an architectural designer, I have been actively involved in complex hospitality projects in China, during schematic design and design development phases, delivering drawings of the highest quality.

 

In 2010 I joined Rafael Viñoly Architects, working closely with Rafael Viñoly, and participating in a wide range of projects of various scales, from high-end residential building to commercial and institutional complexes. In addition, I was responsible for the photorealistic renderings of the company’s flagship buildings and award winning competitions.

 

Prior to this I was an architectural designer at Gauthier Architects focusing on projects in New York, including a 1,500sqf residence for the Home Delivery exhibition at MOMA, a 2,000sqf theater and a 6,000sqf five-story townhouse. In 2006 I was employed by DBOX, as a visualization designer, and had the opportunity to work with firms like Zaha Hadid Architects and Ten Arquitectos, producing exterior and interior renderings for published print-outs and websites.t

 

With over 7 years of experience, I have proven myself a creative and committed designer, capable of collaborating effectively within multidisciplinary teams, in order to meet strict deadlines in some of the most competitive international environments. My experience with projects of multiple scales, familiarity with both the private and public sectors, and direct coordination with clients enables me to perform sharply with projects of higher demands.
