About 

An adaptable, enthusiastic and self-motivated individual with experience in building design and 3D visualization, seeking a spatial design research - architectural assistant placement.

Being an extremely hard working, organized, creative and strategic thinker, I am willing to be challenged, engage with new ideas and ways of working to push myself further forward. I am always interested in integrating a broad range of socio-cultural, ecological, political and tectonic concerns within design in order to construct a holistic urban environment. I also enjoy experimenting with mixed media, various methods of architectural representation and physical/virtual models.

My aim is to work in a creative and collaborative working environment which will challenge my skills and push myself further forward.
