I am a skilled, hardworking and creative Furniture Designer with great attention to detail. I have a proven track-record of being able to work on multiple projects and complete the work on time and within budget. My outstanding knowledge of design programs allows me to fully unleash my inner creativity by working on attractive 2D and 3D projects. I also have excellent knowledge of carpentry and upholstery and this, along with my patience and diligence, is always reflected in my final designs.
