Hello Emma,

I’ve worked for the Stonemasonry Company by the past, when I was working with Atelier Le Grain d’Orge in France, few years ago (see image bellow). I am also closed to the STONO team (I think you know them too).

I am not available for the job you are offering, but still my skills could be of interest for your company, if you have very specific needs (as a freelancer).

If you need any kind of help on Rhino + Grasshopper feel free to contact me. You can visit my website if you want to know more about how I can bring you some value…

I am a structural eng. + PhD.
Also experienced in stone construction and manufacturing.
Please note also that I am based in France.

Sincerely,

Lionel du Peloux
