Graphic Designer and Trainer
My studies in the architectural field and my work as Marketing Responsible and Graphical Trainer on an international level in the association (BEST), led me to improve my graphical skills. Trainers, in the organization, take care of the internal education of the active members, operating in an international context by delivering trainings in different countries with international audience. I'm currently taking care of the Graphical trainings, and the ones related to Visual Identity and Presentation Skills.
