I am an ARB registered Architect and a qualified Urban Designer. As a UK based Architect, I am fortunate to have worked on both UK and International projects. My most recent commissions include the design of private residences and I am currently creating 3D visualisations for a private dwelling.

My approach to architecture is a holistic one. I endeavour to discover ways to enable buildings to interact and integrate with the community, creating mixed use spaces and environments that are vibrant and can be utilised by all. I also strive to find ways to incorporate green spaces into urban environments through the introduction of natural ecosystems. I am excited by the challenge of revitalising underused and derelict spaces; regenerating areas and turning them into vibrant hubs for the community.

I continue to be inspired by innovative and thought provoking design and my personal quest is to create my own iconic ‘Falling Water’. I aspire to design active, more attractive neighbourhoods and create meaningful buildings that serve the community they reside in. I am intrigued by eco-builds and respect efforts to design and implement real sustainable architecture and the use of experimental materials to fulfil the same ends in more innovative ways.

I am a boss at using Photoshop, and I have been using AutoCAD for more than 13 years, so I can do most things with it. I am fascinated by the boundaries that are being broken using Revit and am striving to become a self professed BIM guru. It also goes without saying that my InDesign and SketchUp skills are also pretty fabulous. I am always working on improving my proficiency and Illustrator, V-ray and Rhino are a work in progress. 3D Studio max challenged, confused me and left me with sleepless nights, so I left that one alone.

I am talented, competent, versatile, solution-focused and ready for new ventures and challenges. I seek to work in an environment that pushes the boundaries, continues to nurture my development and utilises my best talents.
