Athena Kotsaba

Athens, GR



Having finished my studies in Architecture (at the University of Leeds in 2006), and having worked in offices in the U.K. and Greece for three years and as an individual architect for a year, I now wish to gain new experience.

I have experience in retail, commercial,educational and residential projects. Currently, I am also attending the second year of a master's degree in 'Lighting Design' in the Open University. This makes it easy for me to relocate.

Throughout my work experience I gained proficient drawing skills in Auto cad, Sketch up, Photoshop, as well as in model making. I am a lively person, devoted to my work and I have excellent communication skills.
