About

VIZIBLE is Florin's web presence, a place to display things he is working on, adventures he is taking part of or mumblings about the injustice in this world.

Bio
Florin is an architect with extensive practical experience. He developed his own architectural practice delivering multiple residential, commercial and industrial projects at a very young age, working both on and off site. His design and fabrication expertise spans several industries, from architecture to marine design, boat building and CNC machinery construction. As a newbie software developer he maintains and develops SeaHorse, a free Rhino plugin. Aside from work, he is designing things, tinkers, sails boats and rides bikes where ever he can. He is dedicating his time developing Project 105 and SeaHorse for Rhino, although he considers new and exciting job opportunities.
