About me

Since August 2017 I am employed as Senior Architectural Technologist at SSH in Cape Town, South Africa. Previously I was employed for 3 years at DSA Architects International and 5 years in a mid-sized architecture firm in Augsburg,

During my apprenticeship as joiner I have gained experience in collaboration with clients, architects, site management and crafts. As architect (BA) I have processed the work stages 1-6. My main work so far has been in detail and working drawings, coordination, site supervision, survey, building permits, barrier-free housing as well as 3D rendering of modernisation and new building projects. I have worked on projects in Germany, South Africa, Kenya, Ghana, Nigeria as well as UAE.

Especially during modernisation projects I have learned how to develop simple construction details, which are flexible and yet fulfil the design aspiration. During my studies I have learned the principles of energetic and environmental design, which can be applied in all climate regions and already influence the design during preliminary drafts.

I am dedicated and can quickly integrate myself into teams. My skills include project structuring, distribution of tasks, office organisation as well as EDP-support. My EDP knowledge enables me to incorporate new software environments in a short period. Furthermore I can keep my cool head also in stressful times.
