What was your background before KLC?

Banking and IT. I graduated from an economy degree and I have studied IT as well. I have spent exciting and challenging years in the financial industry working for several European and global banks in different countries. I could gain a wealth of knowledge about people, project and program management in a truly multinational environment.

Why did you decide to study Interior Design?

A secret dream. Before my university studies, I was deeply interested in design and I even participated in a fashion design competition. As my life had turned into another direction and was full of bits and bytes, cents and pennies, I had to lock the design dreams into a box and put it aside.  One momentum can change a lot in one’s life so I have made a brave decision and opened the box now...

What did you think of the course?

A life changing experience combined with a lot of hard work. We have learnt so much! When I look back I cannot count the endless nights spent with working on my projects. But I can see how we could grow step by step, term by term in knowledge and skills. Each of our projects was different and gave enough challenge and great joy at the end.

What are your design interests/strengths?

Hmmm, interests is a tough one, can I say everything?!? As I said previously, the multi facets of the job allows you to have an appreciation for everything. If I had to name just a couple of design interests, being a jewellery designer I have an appreciation and interest on new craftsmen & women creating new products and hearing the story on how their products evolved. My strengths … Being proactive and self-disciplined and pragmatic, I’ll give anything a go.

What space best represents you?

Oh that’s tough one! Probably something along the lines of a modern rustic kitchen: My old soul meets modern times and there’s plenty to do and in a kitchen too!

What are your plans for the future?

I know it sounds cliché, but the most important thing is; to enjoy life doing things I love. I have no set plans and I will see where my path takes me.  I like the idea of setting up my own design studio in the future.  In the mean time I would love to be part of a team, loving what I am doing every day.
