About Me

I’ve started designing buildings at the age of 8. The first ones were LEGO, of course – I’ve never really accepted the formulated LEGO designs and did my own thing instead.


Later on, after dabbling with Space Engineering for a while, I changed my educational focus to Architecture, and then Masters in Architectural Design, with the dreams of building on Mars. It was 2002, and the Millenium was new.


Two decades in, I have 35 buildings, 24 interiors, 47 exhibition stands and 2 urban-scale designs behind me. Dozens of these have been built – none on Mars though. Well, c’est la vie. I love what I do, and I know I do it well, and at the end of the day, I guess that’s what matters.
