I am a freelance drafter based in Nice and I have been working on the Côte d’Azur since 1997. Prior to that, I was based in Grenoble, in the French Alps. My background is in architecture, which I studied for five years in the Paris area.
I usually work from my office in Nice, but I’m willing to work out of a client’s office for a specified period of time. I’d rather charge a fixed rate for a specific job, but I can also bill my work per day, week or month. I am open to working abroad again as I am single and free to travel.
I’m fully registered in France under the « professions libérales » status. This means I am billing 19,6 % VAT to all my clients based in France. There is no VAT billed to clients based outside of France.
I worked for an American company in Europe for several years and I have also spent some time working in the United States. As a result, I have a strong command of English, both written and spoken.
Outside of my work, I was once an avid runner. I have run marathons in a couple of very beautiful cities, among them Stockholm, Vienna and New-York. Nowadays, I am more into biking.
