FOS Sydney Build Speaker LogoI graduated in 2011 with a Bachelor of Design with a major in Interior Architecture. I began by career working in commercial fit-outs in a firm in Sydney’s CBD working on offices for large companies such as the likes of Jones Lang Lasalle & Lend Lease. I have since worked in high density multi unit residential projects, medical, commercial & hospitality working from concept right through to execution on site and dealing with all the relevant trades.

Within the past 9 years whilst working I also worked as a senior showroom designer for Good Guys & Freedom Kitchens, I have been fortunate enough to have worked on the media designing for TV shows such as The Block, Reno Rumble & Deadline Designs as well as travelling internationally managing the roll outs of all of the showrooms across Australia from concept, installation through to merchandising.

Whilst working at a boutique architectural firm in Newtown from 2017-2019, I designed Australia’s first Co-Living space, a concept derived from the USA & Europe. Co-living is a short or long stay collaborative way of living bringing together the essentials to live, work & play under one roof whilst creating a sense of community which has shaken the Australian rental market. I completed the first 2 in Sydney, Stanmore & Paddington from concept through to completion along with the design for the 3rd property in Newtown. Stanmore won best in Architectural Interiors for the Good Design Australia awards. Throughout the design process, Paddington allowed me the opportunity to travel to Shanghai China to review & approve all prototypes for the joinery in which I had created – that opportunity expanded my knowledge and exposure to more intricate joinery.

My experience in joinery opened up doors for me to manage the design departments of companies such as EPK Architectural joinery & Foxville Projects Group in which I have worked on the new Crown Casino Barrangaroo.

I am constantly working on expanding my knowledge & experience within the design and construction industry to ensure I can be versatile and adaptable for whatever comes my way.
