I take an active stance on shaping the evolution of architecture as a practice, responding to contemporary conditions. An integral part of this is investing in the skills of others, particularly rising architects. For me, exposure to international design, first-hand through travel is paramount for enriching knowledge and experience. For architects, it adds dimensions to our professional capabilities that cannot be done in any other way.
With several decades of international architecture experience across multi-sectors, I have garnered a holistic approach to my work. My career has spanned a diverse range of clients, budgets and conditions, and I have been actively involved in many professional organisations.
I am passionate about the culture and physicality of places and understanding human behaviour. The arts have greatly influenced my work as an architect - along with developing a collection of contemporary art, I am a painter myself.
