Interior Designer


Originally from Spain, where I studied a degree in Mechanical Engineering, and despite the different field of study, it is the result of always thinking I should try something more creative and challenging.
After finishing my studies in Greece, decided to move to London, to explore myself, finding in the rainy city a home for the next 7 years of my life. I got a degree in Interior design, and started my career working for a fantastic multidisciplinary studio doing commercial interiors. Also enjoy doing some set design for short movies & other retail freelance work.
Moved to San Francisco, where I had the opportunity to get into the residential world.
With Interior Design I am able to encompass both cultural and community based aspects – something that I always feel very passionate about.
For me is not just a question of design for design sake, but rather design with a purpose....
