I’m an Architect and Interior Designer with 10 years of professional experience gained in Europe, Asia and the US. I graduated from Cracow’s University of Technology, Poland in 2009. My master degree is accredited by Royal Institute of British Architects. I obtained a professional license in architecture in Poland in 2016. I have worked in many fields of architecture designing office spaces, commercial, industrial and public buildings. However what I enjoy most is to design living spaces in a modern, sustainable way including residential, hospitality and interior.

I am currently a Green Card Holder residing in New York.
