So far I have been very fortunate in my career to have lived around the globe and worked with some amazing designers, architects, consultants and clients all the while gathering knowledge and skills that can be drawn upon at any time in any situation. I have been told many times that Interior Design is inferior to Architecture, but with a strong view on an inside-out approach, I have managed to infiltrate, manipulate and improve the specifics of the internals to better suit the occupier or dweller.
I was born in Adelaide but I have physically followed the design activity around the world and lived or worked for some period of time in Sydney, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, London, Barcelona, Glasgow, Doha, Dubai, Hong Kong and now Melbourne. Most recently I have been building design teams in 50 locations covering most of this planet from New Zealand, Asia, across North America and through Europe.
As an interior architect I have had the opportunity to work alongside well known names such as Zaha Hadid, Patrik Schumacher, Jean Nouvel, David Chipperfield, Ken Shuttleworth, Anouska Hempel and Christian Liagre plus local Australian design legends like Nik Karalis, Dominic Alvaro, Bruno Mendes & David Whittaker, to name a few. Each talent works in a different way,
just as each client has a different requirement, and it is for this reason that I have never woken in the morning and not wanted to go to 'work'.
