About

With over 9 years of experience in Design, Draughting, and Project Management, I am a versatile and creative professional who can deliver high-quality solutions for various industries and markets.

My passion for design is driven by the need to learn new techniques and skills, and to adapt to the changing demands of the industry. I have a strong background in graphic and web design, UI implementation, and multimedia design, which complement my CAD and PM competencies. I also have experience in structural steel draughting, quantity estimating, and site management, which enable me to foresee and resolve potential issues in the design and manufacturing processes.
My goal is to create value for my clients and my company by delivering innovative and effective design solutions.
