Curriculum Vitae


Daniel Johnstone


I studied Interior Design and Decorating at the Potchefstroom Academy completing the three-year higher diploma (NQF level 7). During studies I worked for Siebert Woodworks building and installing cupboards, I have also worked as a set designer and space planner for Eternal Film Productions (PTY) LTD.

I worked at The House of Design and Décor CC incorporating the brand name Brian Leib Interiors CC as a Computer Draftsman in Auto Cad and Revit.

I worked at CTU Training Solutions as a Facilitator for CAD II, Specializing in Draughting with the use of AUTODESK software namely, AutoCAD, Revit, and Inventor. Whilst working I gained knowledge and experience in the designing field. I am willing to learn new techniques and grasp them fairly quickly.

I am working as a Personal Assistant at Danri - Events. I get to work with various clients and by doing so get different décor challenges. I also enjoy working with people and making the event a success. I am a part-time DJ for Rentertainment ZA and No Beat – No Music. Setting up the sound system and being the DJ for the function. I do freelance designing for Smart Designs varying from Pergolas to interior space layouts with custom built designs and 3D renderings. I’m hardworking and enthusiastic, have multiple computer skills and can work under pressure. I am creative in all possible aspects. I am quick to learn new skills that can help me in the future.
