I am a dynamic and ambitious architect with a deep passion for design practicing in different fields of architecture and working within a variety of scales.

I hold a Master Degree in Architecture and studied at the University of Applied Arts Vienna and the Southern California Institute of Architecture. Before I was trained as an interior and 3D Designer. Among my mentors are Wolf D. Prix, Hani Rashid and Coy Howard. I have gained working experiences in several firms, including Coop Himmelb(l)au, Ortner und Ortner and BUS Architects. Besides practicing as a design architect, I have proficiency as a BIM modeler and planner and have taught workshops at the University of Applied Arts Vienna.

I am driven by curiosity and inspired by the architectural experience transforming the status quo. As a conceptual and analytical thinker I aim to design dynamic architecture that not only considers the human body but also the mind, the senses, and the environment. My multidisciplinary approach incorporates natural systems, geometrical phenomena and elements from a wide range of art forms. I rethink and synthesize material and spatial complexity to create highly atmospheric spaces.
