Copenhagen, Denmark



I am a recent Master graduate in Furniture and Spatial Design from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen, DK and I am interested in applying my knowledge from Scandinavian design culture to a different style and environment.

I have experienced working in different environments during my internships as a designer in New York and Copenhagen. I have been facing many challenges, which made dealing with stressful situations easier and I learned a lot about working within a short deadline. At the same time, these experiences have had a lot of influence on who I am today and I realized that taking a challenge and working hard in order to overcome it is what I enjoy doing.
