An Industrial Designer, professional, specialist in Aluminum and Steel Frame, Cladding Faces, with 16 years of experience. Working at Design Team Leader..

Areas of interest: Architecture, Industrial Design, Technology


I´am a Thermal Mechanics, I have experienced in 3D Mechanical Design of advanced metallurgy and metalworking in the high-end civil engineering and construction sector. I have experience of having worked in several multicultural environments on mega-projects that have required expertise in design, manufacture, and construction to meet sustainability targets.

For these projects, I used my skills in managing 3D Parametric Design Training (SolidWorks tool) to ensure that deliverables were met on time and under budget. I also established project controls for the cost of materials used in the construction design, as well as for project reporting and employee relations. I have strong analytic skills, and I am driven by results. Both personal characteristics have helped me to improve processes and to lead project teams to higher performance and improved productivity through continuous improvement.

I have experience in the following segments of the aluminum and steel industry: industrial Design and Civil works, focusing mainly on 3D Design of Rainscreen Cladding, ACP/ACM Cladding, Canopies, Mechanical Louvers, Balustrades, Solar Shading, Metal Folding, Steel Support, Steel and Aluminum Frames, and Material Optimization.

I am knowledgeable in process control and modelling, and have led design teams in 3D software, architectural design, implementation, and customer delivery.
I have been involved in some of the most prestigious projects in Europe: Portugal, Spain, France, United Kingdom, Poland; Middle East: Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, and the Kingdom of Bahrain; Africa: Republic of Angola, and South America: Brazil.

I have trained and mentored other designers and have been involved in major international projects.
