New York, NY, US



I am an architect with 18 years of international experience in the field of architectural and interior design. I have worked on a wide range of project types, maintained all stages of development from sketches to the CAD working drawings and construction details. I have excellent design and graphic skills. Substantial experience in architecture  and 2D-3D computer graphics allow me to create computer-generated architectural visualizations. Utilizing such tools as AutoCAD, Revit, 3Ds Max, Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, MicroStation,  After Effects, I can produce high-quality architectural renderings and animations. I have excellent hand rendering skills and I’m able to transform the design concept into perspectives and illustrations. I am very interested in the Architect/ Designer position in New York City.
