Work & Life Experience

I was born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, where I studied Architecture and Urbanism at the Federal Rural University. Previous to my degree, I took a six month exchange with the Catholic University in France, where I toured Europe visiting the many architectural references first hand.

Back in Brasil I worked on several big scale projects at Acropole Architecture and EMR architecture.

Wanting to explore other fields in architecture, I took an opportunity at Valeria Araujo. This studio specialises in franchises and attending major Brazilian and international clients such as Spoleto, Starbucks, Domino's, Koni Store and many others. Here I enriched my skills in developing projects that embody brand's identity within their limitations.

During this period, I studied specialisation in Interior Design at the Pontifical Catholic University. Then later, I went on to broaden my horizons and started working at the Movement Architecture. A studio focused on Interior Design. This was an exciting and challenging experience.

Finally, I was selected by the Rio de Janeiro's government to work for the state and have been in charge of analysis and inspection to verify if the new constructions meet legislation and zoning codes in a specific neighbourhood in Rio de Janeiro.

Now I'm based in Auckland working as a Interior Designer for Stack Interiors.
