As an Architectural Designer, I get to shape the places where people live, work and play, and have an impact on the way that those spaces function and support human activity. This is a job I am passionate about and find not only fascinating but also rewarding.

I am a very versatile Architectural Designer with over 6 years of extensive project experience from concept to development. I have strong interpersonal and organizational skills and give careful attention to client needs. While I thrive in collaborative environments, I also enjoy focusing on individual projects.
