Profile

received_982485535836359_edited.jpg

I am a qualified Engineering Technician and BIM designer and looking for creative opportunities in CAD / BIM technology, construction, architecture, and engineering. Methodical in approach with a good sense for figures and measurements and a good understanding of engineering design principles and interpretation of drawings. I have working experience with Autodesk AutoCAD and Revit since their 2008 version. I am skilled in preparing BIM documentation, producing and revising layouts, schedules, and renderings, including photo-realistic visualisation and structural calculations, and experienced in CAD block and Revit family creation.

With almost 15 years of professional work in creative media, I have gained the highest level of experience in the audio-visual field including knowledge of all the relevant digital technologies that accompany these professions. I am skilled and trained in TV post-production, linear and non-linear editing, special effects design and camera shooting. In addition to my experience and personal qualities, I also have a solid educational foundation and a passion for research and development. I have signed several achievements, including a delivery of several successful audio-visual research projects, in which I assisted in writing grant applications, projects and tenders that were part of the EU Horizon 2020 and Creative Europe funding programs.

My primary interest is structural engineering, calculations of stresses on all areas of the building, design and assessment of structural integrity. I am enthusiastic and looking to build on my extensive range of theoretical and technical skills in architectural design, advanced drafting systems, and structural engineering. My ability to master complex ideas and deep desire to learn new things ensured that I continually grew within the technological advances. I value working in a collaborative environment, and I’m equally comfortable working independently. I have been on projects where I have worked separately, whether from wireframing of the product or all the way through to prototyping and delivering, whether through design, analyses or technical testing. 

I have worked for several British companies including - Architettura Ltd Grantham on several historic building restoration projects and JRL Modular Ltd in Carlton-on-Trent, a division of JRL Group Corporation on MEP design. I currently work for KSA Structural & Civil Engineering in Nottingham.
