Where were you born?
I was born in Macedonia.
Why do you like to work at Mancini?
It is an excellent opportunity to develop your talents beyond your comfort zone.
What’s something you’d still love to learn?
I’d like to learn the art of persuasion and negotiation because it’s an intrinsic part of our everyday lives, whether at home or work. We do it intuitively, without giving it much thought, but learning the principles of ethical and effective persuasion could significantly improve the outcome of any interaction.
Describe Mancini’s company culture in one word?
What’s the best advice you’ve ever received?
“Look and forget.” This was more of a mantra than advice from one of my teachers in architecture school. I think the idea behind this phrase was that we should be observant about our environment, learn from it, but then be able to forget what we’ve seen and think with an open mind.
Who inspires you the most in your field?
Peter Zumthor, Herzog & de Meuron, Rem Koolhaas, Bernard Tschumi. I find their theoretical work to be as equally inspiring as their architecture.
