PRINCIPAL

With over a decade of experience nationally working across various sectors with some of Australia's leading design practices, I specialise in the design and development of projects in Commercial, Hospitality, Residential and Education fields. Fundamentally I believe that design should develop holistically, with the end result being more than just the sum of its parts. I am passionate about working closely with both the client and end user in order to create a truly tailored and specific design solution.

As a senior interior designer (B.Env Des, B.Des (Int. Design) Hons) with twelve years industry experience, my design aesthetic and skills have evolved across over multiple sectors within the building and construction industry, focusing primarily on commercial workplace interiors in Melbourne. In late 2014 I relocated back to Perth after eleven years interstate.

Confident in all stages of a design project, from briefing and budgets, design and documentation, client engagement to completion. In particular I have strong skills associated with:

  • Concept presentation, including visual and tactile elements
  • FF+E selection, procurement and budgeting
  • Material and loose furniture and objet scheduling
  • Custom joinery detailing and documentation
  • Photoshop and Adobe Suite software
  • Google Sketchup and Revit 3D modeling (BIM)

Exposed to a wide variety of projects over the course of my career, I bring a wealth of experience in the following sectors:

  • Retail
  • Commercial interiors and national headquarters
  • Hotel and Hospitality
  • Aged care and health interiors
  • Government and judicial buildings

I am an established designer always looking to pursue new creative sectors while developing long lasting relationships with clients that appreciate engaging, timeless design. I believe that an interior and design project is more than just the sum of its parts, that success begins from day dot and carries on once a project is handed over. Developing spaces that benefit and respond to the end user and enrich all those who actively or passively interact with an environment is what drives me.

The work I have produced demonstrates my ability to interpret, and respond accordingly, to each clients unique brief and vision. This relationship carries through the length of each project to ensure a success delivery and outcome is achieved.

As the father of two young boys, flexibility has become the most important word in my day to day life. I embrace agile working styles which enable me to maximize day to day operations and successfully deliver projects.
