Over the last 15 years I have had the privilege of working in architectural firms specialising in Public, commercial & residential sectors of the industry with a major focus on public building documentations including educational, hospitals, healthcare & sport facilities.  I have gained experience in an array of project types at different stages and scales. These including competition design, DA &SS development, design development(100%tender & D&C), constructional design & contract administration both as the project leader and a team member to manage and deliver effective & successful projects. After migration to Australia, I have decided to study a second masters in architecture to in vast my knowledge about local architecture. Through my time at the university of Sydney I have honed my skills in research, analysis and communication techniques. In turn, I have been able to integrate my practical experience with the academic side of the profession in order to push my ideas and designs to the next level.

 

I am as passionate about the design process as I am about the end product.  When it comes to design, I believe  there are no short cuts - each step is as important as the next,  from the concept sketch right down to the detailing. Detailing and design resolution that stays true to the core concept is something that I am truly passionate about.
