Up to date CV July 2012


  • PERSONAL PROFILEHaving recently completed an Interior Architecture Degree with a First Class Honours, I am looking to build upon my skills and knowledge within the design field. I am a dedicated reliable individual, eager to take on any creative challenge working with initial concept through to completed scheme. I have always been passionate about art and design, however in the last 3 years it is my passion for design and architecture which has grown substantially. I am particularly interested in the re-use of existing buildings as I feel it is important to preserve and recycle our architectural heritage for a sustainable future.
