From the beginning he dealt with interior design, residential design, industrial design and visual communication, assisting with educational programs at several university courses at the Polytechnic.

In the meantime he cooperated with other studies in the field of exhibitions, corporate identity and product design. In 1999 he founded his design company and started dealing with the themes of sustainable architecture, renewable energy and energy-saving technologies.
