I’m an Australian Junior Architect and have recently moved to NY. I graduated in 2016 from the University of Sydney with a bachelor of design in Architecture and bachelor of Civil Engineering with 1st class honours.

During Uni I worked for a small architecture practice doing residential work. In 2015 I participated in Sydney’s MADE Scholarship program, where I spent 2 months in Copenhagen collaborating with a multidisciplinary team of architects, designers and engineers at the firm COBE. 

The past year I have worked on 2 films - Alien: Covenant, and Pacific Rim: Uprising. As a set designer I worked on the design, pre-visualisation, and drafting of sets. This included on-site experience to work out the construction of sets, and collaboration with a range of disciplines - set dec, props, construction, carpenters, welders, sculptors, sfx, prac lx, vfx, manufacturers.

Resene Rising Star, 1st Place

Winner of the Resene Total Colour Rising Star Student Award for the project "Bridge with Coffee and Karaoke".

"In this project, the power of colour stimulates conversation. The colour adds an informality and liveliness to the structure. The contrast between intimate spaces and extroverted spaces is emphasised through the use of colour. Neutral colours and vibrant colours chosen individually strengthen the juxtaposition of activities on the bridge. Dark colours contrast and accentuate the lighting to form cosy and intimate spaces.

The colours are intrinsic to the characterisation of intimate and extroverted spaces."
