About me


Focused and adaptive individual, always keen on learning and taking up new challenges. My understanding for design and trends comes from years of experience working in different media and industries, which I always try to incorporate in my projects as well as my everyday life. Trained in various forms of design including but not limited to interior, architectural and furniture design, set design, art directing as well as graphics, 3D design and visual merchandising. Software and computer knowledge are my advanced and most developed skills, which is why 3D design is my favourite design form; either that being concept work and visuals, or 3D architectural models and graphics. Other skills include design management, hand drawing, computer and hand drafting, 3D modelling, sketching, 3D printing, team leading and supervising. As a designer, I appreciate all advice and how to further develop my skills and abilities, individually but also in a team, something I am working on on daily bases.
