Zandro is a Senior Interior Designer with over 25 years of professional design experience. He is a graduate of Technological Institute of the Philippines and holds a BSc in Architecture and a Certificate in Urban Design from Simon Frasier University. Zandro oversees project scheduling, team management and design at HDI. His expertise lies in balancing the continuous demand for creative design solutions, with the challenging realities imposed by time, budget and corporate objectives and identities.
Zandro travels every chance he gets, and never leaves home without his sketchbook. He is responsible for other team members having songs from The Beatles and Star Wars stuck in their heads, and he doesn't feel the slightest bit guilty about it.
