About

I am a young architect/ artist with 4 years of experience working at two architecture firms in South Africa. I am a quick learner and tech savvy. Due to my artistic background, I have an eye for detail and a natural flare for design. My drawing styles are very neat and precise. My visual presentation skills are innovative, functional and aesthetically pleasing.

While working in South Africa, I have had the opportunity to work on a vast variety of projects. These projects include; warehousing, car dealerships with showrooms, low-cost housing projects in South Africa, Early Childhood Development Centres for the South African Government, private residential dwellings, South African Government buildings etc.

While completing these aforementioned projects, I have had to produce various types of drawings such as; interior design layouts for high-end foyers, interior design layout for coffee shops, kitchen layouts, electrical layouts, sewer layouts & sections, fitting details, various schedules, construction drawings, as-built drawings based on measured hand-drawn sketches from site, presentation drawings, numerous renders (external & internal), submission drawings to Municipality etc.

I have more than 10 years of experience working with Autodesk Revit, Autodesk AutoCad, Lumion rendering, Microsoft Powerpoint & Microsoft Word. I am currently learning Google Sketchup and Blender.
