My passion about home furnishing and curiosity on how people live at home has brought me to work for the design and retailing industry. Working in a team and sharing knowledge is for me fundamental as it is also the chance to share with others the latest trends and development in design, which i am constantly following. The high standards needed and aspired to in the design industry fit my personality and the desire to always achieve the highest quality of work.
