After spending 10 years working in Europe on large scale commercial projects for the likes of Cisco Systems in Amsterdam, Barclays World HQ, Canary Wharf, and an extension to the Kuwait National Assembly, I returned to New Zealand in 2006.
My local work includes the multi award winning Green 5 Star office building refurbishment at 21 Queen Street, the Albany Stadium Aquatic Centre, International indoor sports and swimming facilities for the Pacific Games, motorsports developments, local government and civic projects.
I enjoy bringing my international experience to local projects across a broad range of market sectors.

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.

Having had 11 years experience in London, I returned to New Zealand in 2013. I’ve been lucky enough to work with a huge variety of clients, consultants and colleagues, which has made my architectural career enlightening and always entertaining.
In both the UK and NZ I have had the opportunity to work on a range of fantastic projects from larger scale commercial buildings, super-prime residential projects in London, retail and corporate fitouts to multi-unit residential developments.
I love to travel, but in NZ you will find me doing DIY, sailing and playing as much tennis as possible.

Hi there! With a background as an experienced Executive Assistant and Office Manager for professional services and corporate firms including banks, I enjoy enjoying working in an architectural & design practice understanding the design structure procedures and processes required to make it all work.
I manage general day to day operational functions of the office including financial, HR and all the general administration functions required for a functioning office. I thrive on organising people, making things happen, and getting things done. Away from the office I love socialising, family camping holidays, managing my son’s sports teams, and I’m an avid sports fan at Eden Park.

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.
