I am an architectural designer who is drawn to projects in the cultural, hospitality, and commercial/ retail markets. I believe that within these markets there are distinctive opportunities to create environments, which foster unique interactions between people and the space itself. I have a special interest in the design of bars and restaurants. I enjoy their unique ability to create an atmosphere that is a total immersive experience of all the senses.
