AMBITIOUS INTERIOR ARCHITECT
My expertise for the past four years had been directed towards bathroom and kitchen design; project management; effective communication, time and budget control; direct liaison with suppliers, fabricators and customers; and more.
With my eagerness to learn, and excel beyond expectation - I have developed a professional work ethic. detailed design insight, as well as an influential client connection and understanding; executed within each daily interaction. Be you a fellow employee, management, client - professional, or client - Mr & Mrs. Jones.
On the side line, I have been preoccupied with further reading and studies within the building environment, as well as that of philosophical analogies regarding the Self, and the individual's "worth" within society. Time has been a great teacher. Historical precedents and further self study , had proved it so. The crux is whether or not we are willing to learn from what had been done before, in turn influencing an improved tomorrow, daily. Why wouldn't we as individuals want to strive for a balanced lifestyle between humanity and the environment? Why wouldn't we as individuals want to strive to help one another grow, and become the better selves we ought to be?

I am here to be of assistance.
Which means I am here to make sure what ever had been selected and confirmed as final order : will be exactly what had been envisioned, doing exactly what it had been designed, specified, and installed for.
I’m here to help inform decisions and advise– not force anything upon you.
I’m here to guide you : applying pressure where need be, when time (you’ve specified) is of the essence to meet deadlines. Time is easily lost within projects – and it frustrates me of how much I could help you save. Allowing some of the stress induced specifying sessions to be relieved : because as a product specialist, all you
need to do is ask – and a curated solution will be presented within your given deadline ( if not sooner.)
BATHROOM and KITCHEN
DESIGN AND SALES CONSULTANT
STERLINGS Bathrooms and Kitchens, PTA
The beauty lies in the technical practicality of the design - brought together with an amazing selection (combination) of colours and textures. Each [new] interaction, was another opportunity to offer value to the consumer. It was amazing being trusted for my advice on what deciding factors are most important to pay attention to - relevant specifically to their brief and available space. Sales aren't supposed to be forced. If a consumer values me and what I have to offer - then it is up to them to decide. By doing just that... an opportunity fell into my lap...

To assist with the financial strain of stabling costs, I took it upon myself to teach younger riders. In the beginning it was extremely difficult, as I had no patience. But,then it dawned on me.
