I am currently working at Foster + Partners in London, as an Architectural Interior Designer. I have had experience working not only from an Interior perspective but also in an Architectural capacity. I have worked on a number of international projects including the West Kowloon Cultural District in Hong Kong, the Slussen Master-Plan in Stockholm and Bloomberg’s new European headquarters in London.

I have experience of working in a number of creative fields- graphic and product design as well as interior design and architecture. I briefly worked for a design firm in Hong Kong that specialised in workplace consultancy and commercial interior design for large, international clients such as Bank of America.

I hope to continue working at an international level. I have worked at various scales; from master-planning projects, at concept and scheme design phases to the conceptual design of mixed use buildings and through to producing comprehensive detail design packages. I was project co-leader on a residential tower development in Kuala Lumpur- RIBA work stages A-G and responsible for the coordination of this submission. From my educational and professional background I have thorough experience working on interior fit-outs, and producing detail design packages, liaising with various consultants and contractors. I am currently involved in the fit-out of Bloomberg’s European office HQ in London, initially working with the client on briefing documentation and subsequently on the test-fit and space planning, working with industrial designers to produce a unique, tailor-made desking system.
