I am a a freelance architect, artist and an Universal Design consultant.

I provide standard architectural and urban design services for a wide range of buildings be it residential, commercial or industrial. Universal Access audits and consulting are included in my service package to help improve compliance to building regulations/ accessibility codes and ensure that buildings are socially responsive and accessible from the start.

Beside the standard architectural services rendered I am a practising artist working mostly in watercolours, pens, inks, and mixed media. I had been commissioned by private individuals and corporate companies as Grolsch and SA Taxi Foundation to create bespoke work of art. View my latest artworks on my website:
