Architects co-create the future because every piece of their
work will be a part of our world for many years to come. I want to
build a world where beauty and functionality live in harmony with
nature and where people can look forward to each new day.

Professional summary

I am an ambitious young architect working and studying in Sweden. I have Master's
degree in Architecture. During my exchange study at Bauhaus University in Weimar
I have learnt how important is the natural and mainly the historical context of the site.

I have five years of experience from architectural offices in Slovakia and in Sweden.
During my practice I well developed my ability to think in context and I also boosted
my time management skills. Based on my strong interest in architectural lighting design
and mainly in daylighting, I decided to do my second Master's degree in Architectural
Lighting Design at KTH in Stockholm. Currently I am working as an architect in Stockholm
and studying Swedish language at Stockholm University.

I like my work and I also like working in the team, where people cooperate and
complement each other. Every new project is a challenge for me and crossing own
borders is in my daily routine. My biggest wish is to merge all my potential, experience
and skills into one.


Personality

Enthusiastic, responsible, positive, hardworking, communicative, confident, flexible,
patient, relaxed and honest.


Interests

I love to spend my free time swim trainings. For years I have been devoted to astrophysics
and astronomy. The best relax for me is to take a pencil and sketch.
