Je suis un designer de meubles avec plus de 9 ans d'expérience dans l'industrie.

J'ai travaillé pour de petites entreprises produisant des meubles rembourrés au Royaume-Uni, des entreprises produisant de grandes quantités de lots en Chine et des entreprises produisant des menuiseries sur mesure pour London.

Je travaille en freelance à Paris, principalement pour des clients à distance. J'ai une expertise dans la création conceptuelle, l'esquisse, la modélisation 3D, les modèles de rendu et les dessins techniques très détaillés pour la production.

J'ai de l'expérience dans une large gamme de logiciels tels qu'AutoCAD, Fusion360, Solidworks, 3DSMax et Blender.
