Given the fact that I have worked in small offices most of the times, I have developed great flexibility in multitasking from 2D to 3D to BIM-related work. Even though I have a deep passion and understanding of the visual arts, during previous collaborations I was required to contribute from early-stage competition phases (i.e. concept development) all the way up to technical detailing for hotels and commercial projects, albeit on different projects from different practices, making me more than suitable to handle multitasking. I can contribute to your office with a rock-solid knowledge of graphic presentations with great ease, speed and precision, constantly perfected over 4 years of professional use and more than 8 years of learning 3DS Max, Rhino, Vray, RevIt, Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator and anything related to them, as a hobby.

HUMANITAS Gambrinus Library - EXHIBIT Arhitectura
This is just one of the Humanitas Libraries designed by EXHIBIT Arhitectura, of which I had the rare opportunity to see come to life. It was designed as a modular space that can be quickly reconfigured for different events held at this location.
