My Bio:

Desire of learning!

When I started my career as an architect I was driven by the desire of creating 3D buildings. With the time technology changed so quick that now everyone can be a designer and to create products without studying in university or to hire professional. There are so many free tools and services already that we need just to select the right set for us and we can bring our approach all over the world using all these resources. I wish I would know Udemy when I started 12 years ago because my career could grow 10 times faster by learning. Now I am succesfull enterpreuner in couple branches and I am working only on what I really love. On Udemy I am sharing my skillsets with you because we all need support on our way of learning.

Learning by testing!

My first project as an young architect was a university building which I won on a public competition. After several years of doing what I really love I understood that we all are learning day by day and we need to share what we know to help other people grow. Also I realized that only beeing good in my work is not enough. So I start learning marketing strategies and did lot of tests on what is working. Also by gained couple techniques as speed reading and mnemonic I became 10 times faster by learning and memorising things. All this knowledge allows me to spend more time with my family and to do what I really love.
