I am a motivated urban and territorial planner who wants to enhance his knowledge with new high quality, professional and cultural experiences.
In the last 4 years I have extended my professional knowledge with a practical experience, being involved in studies, projects, competitions and events in which I worked with international experts mainly from Netherlands, Italy and Spain. During this time, I’ve been involved in different forms in European projects, programmes and funding proposals.
The projects developed and/or implemented during this period covered planning themes such as: sustainable development, urban revitalization, brownfield regeneration, community development, cultural tourism and energy efficiency.
Additionally, I have also participated in urban planning and design competitions, and workshops. Concerning the above, I organized and coordinated a number of teams. With one of them, our project was awarded with first prize for the redevelopment of an urban park. (Other challenging competitions “Europan 11-Sestao” and “Green Tel Aviv”).
For one year I worked entirely as a freelancer. During this time, I have gained management and leadership abilities due to the necessity of drafting and developing my own projects. The “Refresh Soveja 2012 – rural regeneration workshop” that I initiated, developed and implemented was considered by the participants a remarkable event.
As a result of my active involvement, I have developed strong communication skills that now enable me to cooperate in any kind of team and to build an effective working method.
Equally important, I have certified myself as a “project manager” and I have learned new aspects about: public policies, participatory planning, communication, sustainable development and mobility by participating in trainings.
Aside from all these, I am passionate about photography which is for me a great instrument to study the processes and phenomena that are taking place in human settlements.
