I am an architect with a passion for sustainable development. Over the last few years I have worked on diverse sectors such as education, health, housing and commercial. With proven track record in time-efficiency and strong interpersonal skills, communication within the team and external stakeholders has been easy.
I completed the Master programme 'Master of Sustainable Development within the built environment' which expanded my knowledge to design buildings with minimal global impact and also extended my interest for sustainable building operations.
