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.
