New York, NY, US



On completion of my secondary education and a gap year teaching in England, I realised that my career was in architecture.

I obtained my Masters of Architecture from the University of Queensland, a leading Australian university, and now have several years of experience involved in all aspects of project design and delivery in highly responsive practices committed to good design and exceptional service. Foremost, I am passionate about robust design outcomes. I also enjoy the complexity of realising a project - managing budget and scale; the relationship of the design to the site; the client to the architect and builder; the relationship between material choices and a sustainable collective future.

Awarded my Masters in Project Management in 2014, I have been applying these combined skills managing complex luxury retail and residential projects.
