About 

I am a design-led, competition-winning, highly experienced architect with broad, international, major-project design and job-running experience. I seek a position with an eminent practice in New York to develop and deliver ground-breaking and exhilarating architectural projects.

From master-planning large-scale urban and coastal areas, hospitality resorts and transport facilities to designing tall buildings and large residential and hospitality developments, to managing architectural and interior-design teams, my broad experience and team-player nature allow me to make a broad and significant contribution. 

Design will always remain my focus and key interest. Career highlights have been leading and winning the massive Larnaka Port & Marina Redevelopment Project competition/concession in 2008, being profiled/recognized as one to ‘change architecture and design’ by Blueprint Magazine UK in 2009, and winning the Lord Byron high-rise towers development competition in 2010. I am British and a NYC resident with US green card.
