I am passionate about conceptualizing innovative design solutions that challenge the status quo. I am interested in the value that good design has to offer and dedicated to exploring how ambitious design can add value within real world constraints.

Currently, I am working in New York at SHoP Architects as a Design Associate. Previously I was with Fender Katsalidis Architects for 7 years in both their Melbourne and London offices.

My experience is predominately in high-end high-rise residential architecture as well as cultural buildings, however also extends to master planning of large inner city sites, civic precincts and the design of smaller scale wineries and cellar doors. These projects extend throughout Australia, New York, Kuala Lumpur, Melbourne, and the U.A.E.

My strengths and passion are in the creative, solving problems through design, therefore I gravitate towards the initial conceptual stages of the design process. The addition of a Bachelor of Property to my Architecture degrees has allowed my passion for creativity to be coupled with a greater depth of understanding of the developers perspective and has aided me in dealing directly with the clients, allowing optimal design outcomes that are in line with client expectation. 

I have an ongoing passion for architectural and art theory as well as research led design. I am proficient in Revit, Archicad, Autocad, Rhinoceros, Grasshopper, Sketchup as well as Vray and Artlantis rendering programs, Photoshop, iIlustrator and Indesign.
