I consider myself a Designer with many skills that would exceed your expectations. I am a out of the box thinker with the imagination of a kid, who is proficient implementing successful and beautiful designs. Highly motivated to create things that have not been seen before I pursued a career in architecture,but decided to follow the interior design path.
Interior designers make interior spaces functional, safe, and beautiful by determining space requirements and selecting decorative items, such as colors, lighting, and materials. But is much more than that, to create a space one must understand the client, what they want and what they need without loosing your personality and what you really believe in. 
As a good team player who is open to working in a fast paced environment with demanding deadlines, I can quickly create superb individual conceptual designs, work out costs and prepare estimates of projects. On top of this I possess excellent communication skills and will be very comfortable liaising directly with clients. 
As someone who is creative, technically minded and has great attention to detail, I can easily design, develop and deliver unique high end results. I am an expert at AutoCAD, 3D modelling, visualization, Photoshop, PowerPoint, Hand sketching, Revit, lighting and colour schemes. Greater details of what I can offer and of my accomplishments can be found on my attached resume.
