I studied Architecture for the DPLG diploma which is a 7 years state course. I spent a year in Copenhangen as an Erasmus student and started working full time at Norman Foster while still at school. For two years, I worked in London and pursued my education at the Beaux Arts. I graduated from the Ecole des Beaux Arts with Excellent Mention.
