Collaborating with many talented colleagues and clients while working for some great companies over the past 20+ years has resulted in a fun filled ride. From Europe, the U.S, and the Middle East, to Oceania, projects worked on have encompassed workplace, airports, leisure, retail, and residential, as well as the design of a patented parking system for kick-style scooters.
Among a number of award-winning projects has been ‘Project Kingfish’ – Air New Zealand’s world leading transformation of the front of house customer experience. The way technology – animated VR especially – can better inform the design process, outcomes, and user experience is an area of special interest for me. As a result of this, I’m working to complete a master’s degree, specialising in Experience Design (XD).
I enjoy riding my bike, a bit of athletics, as well as coaching junior football & playing 8 a side.

Architecture to me is about understanding the end user and how they want to experience the built environment.
It’s a team sport which involves collaborating with all the specialists and parties involved, testing ideas, and creatively solving problems within the constraints of the site, as well as commercial and regulatory parameters.
With over 10 years’ experience across a range of project types including residential, commercial, retail and education, I am committed to providing quality, solution focused design outcomes.

I’m a qualified Interior Designer, having trained in India and the UK, I moved to New Zealand in 2017. With 10 years of design experience across commercial, hospitality and retail projects I’ve designed and worked for a wide variety of clients across the UK, India & NZ.
I believe that great design is more than just good aesthetics. It is whether we are curious about the way we use space and how we use creativity to improve/create a design as well as life. As an interior designer, I’m always pursuing experiences in a creatively challenging environment. Being a designer to me means being an innovator as well as a problem solver.
I enjoy chess, cricket, sketching, and I’m an avid photographer who loves being outdoors with nature.
