How did you first learn about architecture and when did you decide that built environment profession was an area of interest for you?

My uncle was an architect, so I kind of knew about architecture, but wasn't exposed to design as a kid. When I was at school. I was quite interested in art, so I did a lot of art, and I quite like technical drawing, so I enrolled in architecture.

What do you do?

I lead interior design at Hayball. I studied architecture, registered and practiced for almost ten years, before I started to focus more on interior architecture, architecture and because I wanted to really advocate for holistic design.

What excites you in the work you do? Who or what inspires you professionally?

It's really good to collaborate with people, I really like working with other people and conceiving ideas with other people, and helping other people conceive and realize their ideas as well.

Who or what inspires you professionally? What is your proudest professional accomplishment or achievement?

The people around me, I enjoy the collaboration side of things. Creating environments that people enjoy and seeing other designers and spaces that they create, how people embrace those spaces, I think is it's quite inspiring.

What is your proudest professional accomplishment or achievement?

That varies across the years, I was very proud to register as an architect, it's a bit of a milestone for an architect. Becoming a director was a big achievement, and taking that path to be able to lead Interiors and advocate through practice.
