I work as an independent interior architect and designer. My special interest is in designing
learning and working environments. In addition to working as a designer I am also interested
in design based research. In order to produce basic drawings I use Rhino and Archicad. I have
also good skills of using Photoshop and Indesign for producing presentation material. I am
experienced in exhibition planning both in Finland and abroad. My personal strengths are
organization, argumentation and presentation skills with good overall management skills.
I also play well both in teams and independently.
