I am a Senior Design Architect with 15 years’ experience with the last 3 years based in Dubai with LW Design Group. I am now seeking the opportunity to further my career in an expanded capacity.

My architecture career commenced in a design intensive office where I was exposed to various design award winning projects. Preserving and developing design principles from concept to construction is a skill that I have been recognized for; I have been sent to various countries to manage branch offices and projects. My earlier experience in interior design and landscaping scopes was essential in my dealings with foreign consultants and developers especially in the hospitality developments.    

In the last 3 years, LW Design has exposed me to the requirements of office and construction management as well as authority submissions in Dubai’s context. I have been lead architect in a Villa and 2 Apartment projects from concept stage to tendering documentation. One of which is the Adventz tower, a 70 storey apartment, which has won design awards and shortlisted in the 2016 Word Architecture Festival Awards. I was also involved in 2 other residential developments, for Emaar and Meraas, taking charge of Interiors and landscape scope to detail design stage.
