Currently at SHoP Architects, New York, as a Senior Associate. Previously at Fender Katsalidis Architects for 7 years in both their Melbourne and London offices.

My experience is predominantly in high-rise residential architecture and cultural buildings, however also extends to master planning of large inner city sites, civic precincts and the design of smaller scale wineries and cellar doors. These projects extend throughout Australia, New York, Kuala Lumpur, Melbourne, and the U.A.E.

My strengths and passion are in the creative, solving problems through design, therefore I gravitate towards the initial conceptual stages of the design process. My background in Real Estate Development (Bachelor of Property) as well Architecture (Masters of Architecture) has allowed my passion for creativity to be coupled with a greater depth of understanding of the developers perspective allowing optimal design outcomes that are in line with client expectation. 

I am proficient in Revit, Archicad, Rhinoceros, Grasshopper, Sketchup as well as Vray and Artlantis rendering programs, Photoshop, IIlustrator and Indesign.
