Personal profile

Architecture, web design, graphic design and photography are interests I dive in everyday, particularly the relation between design and innovative technologies. I am a team worker with an investigative attitude, who has developed the quality to think out of the box, contributing to innovative (architectural) designs and solutions. I am always looking for ways to extend Architecture with other disciplines or new techniques, so I can be one step ahead and contribute to a better and more sustainable living environment. In the design process, I make use of new technologies and programs, to search for new solutions, which appeared to be impossible. By means of technological innovations in the process of design I want to contribute to the quality of our living environment and our society.
