Ghent, BE



I have a constant will to go further expectations, to research and apply, to touch the client and to team work. Because I believe change is development and I am willing to go for it to reach the goal. I also believe a team is more than a sum of people, is sinnergy combined to thrive.

I am a dynamic, entusiastic, etic, goal oriented, team player and criative person.

I am an architect with 12 years experience, mainly in rehabilitation and sustainable projects, but also in competitions and detailling. For the last 2 years I have been a Sustainability Consultant helping fellow architect achieving a sustainable built environment and construction management. I am also a certified BREEAM Assessor and Accredited Professional, providing certification internationally. I have 4 years experience as project manager and team leader responding mainly to programs like housing, hotels, schools and markets. I have worked in Portugal, Spain, The Netherlands and Belgium.
Travelling, trekking and reading area my hobbies.
