About 

My idea is to undertake every project with open mind, and without preconceived concepts or assumptions.
I am testing different approaches towards design challenges that I face, and develop custom tools to solve them.
I do not have a fixed methodology for arriving at solutions, instead I try to adapt to specificity of each project, and develop new ones accordingly.
In my work I have collaborated with artists, scientists, educators, constructors, building contractors, musicians, carpenters and soldiers (not necessarily in that order). 
I am always interested in extending my expertise and further developing my skills in new disciplines.

My experience
As exhibition designer I have experience in conducting projects from concept sketches to finished objects, supervising every stage of their development, and simplifying the dialogue between content developers, constructors and workshop staff during the process.

Within the Architectural field, I have been developing concepts, construction designs and detailed documentation, as well as supervising construction sites and representing architectural studio before construction contractors.

My background
During my studies I have spent two years abroad (in Turin, Italy and Barcelona, Spain) and had the opportunity to collaborate on projects with students from across the world. 
I have tried to broaden the scope of my study program, taking courses in industrial design, experimental techniques in design, and sustainability.

I believe that my experience enables me to tackle projects of various scales and levels of complexity, and work in teams with people representing different disciplines, approaches and mindsets.
