I practice at the intersection between meaning, aesthetics and commerce.
As an external examiner of university student work, I look to architecture as an act of translation. 
I am currently furthering my knowledge in M&E and Quality Management in order to integrate multidisciplinary teams and benefit others through transfer of skills learnt in the building industry.

Architect Experience: Qualified Professional Architect (PArch - SACAP). 14-year Experience ranging from design development through to contract administration and construction oversight. Primarily in small to medium-scale commercial and institutional building projects in South Africa (R5 million– R37 million), and in Africa (DRC - $2 million, Nigeria). Scope: Concept design proposals, alterations & additions, new buildings and feasibility studies.

QMS Experience: Quality Control Officer for 15-months implementing M&E and QA/QC to socioeconomic processes in land access and involuntary resettlement, in a high-visibility LNG project in Afungi, Mozambique. Preparation of 2 standard procedures manuals (as team member and lead, respectively), for private companies operating in engineering and construction management fields in Mozambique.
