I speak french and spanish fluently, and also have a background in branding - this means I have an unusual balance of commercial awareness, creativity and technical skills.
Along with my technical skills I am highly competent in 3D Modelling and design visualisation: Advanced Vectorworks, competent Photoshop, AutoCAD, InDesign. I have solid skills in architectural and perspective drawing, mood and concept boards, and freehand sketching.
Previous projects include concept designs for a residential block for Barratt Homes, a 4000m2 office space in Farringdon and several high end residential projects in London. I also work freelance as a florist, so have good experience in event styling. Finally I have excellent project and budget management skills gained from point of sale and retail design projects.
I am creative, conscientious and organised and enjoy the learning process immensely.
