New York, NY, US



I am an Australian registered architect with 10+ years of experience in boutique private residential, multi-story residential and retail design. I moved to NYC 6 years ago and have worked for both a large high-profile traditional firm, a smaller; boutique residential focused firm and now run my own company with a focus on wellness architecture. 

As as an international architect I continue to learn and submerse myself in local design idiosyncrasies, law and traditions whilst encouraging my clients to try new ways of thinking more deeply rooted in my 'Australian way of doing things', including discovering ways to make your home and work a healthier place to be.

Did you know we spend 90% of our time indoors? That is a lot of time exposed to toxins, chemicals and other indoor air pollutants. Our furniture, materials and fabrics off-gas into the air that we breathe, leading to many health conditions. It is my role as a wellness designer to help clients make health conscious design decisions, be it furniture and material selections, floor plan layout or maximizing natural light .
