Beyond architecture & design, I enjoy being SuperDad, cook and sketch in my spare time.
A collage from my portfolio that reflects a few of my interests and architecture I like
Apart from architecture I have a keen interest in music.
I studied music performance on the violin in addition to my architectural studies at university.
These days I play the viola with the Stonnington Symphony Orchestra and Orchestra 21 Chamber Orchestra as well as two string quartets.
If its a nice day, you'll find me at the beach.
Growing up in Tasmania taught me to appreciate the environments around us. I love thinking about the connections between natural and man-made spaces; whether that be a window with a view to a mountain or the smell of a warm fire when you arrive home on a cold night.
I'm obsessed with mechanisms, especially those handmade and human powered.
Once your feet have left the ground and you have tasted flight, you will never return.
Our Cocker Spaniel George gives us the push for daily exercise even on the wettest of days!
One of the most beautiful natural landscapes I have visited - the Canadian Rockies
I cant get by without the Australian Alps!
I enjoy all aspects of a farming life from managing our flock of sheep, heritage chickens, growing vegetables and collecting the bales of hay in summer.
We are aiming for a sustainable lifestyle.
There is nothing I enjoy more than an evening of playing and listening to Celtic music with family and friends
As I am still fairly new to Melbourne, I really enjoy spending my spare time exploring new and exciting places in Victoria.
Grown up in a world of Lego, reinvigorated since having children.
Impressively GRAND with timber in foundation, arches supporting the mammoth structure above, purity of colour, intricate inlay of calligraphy, floral motifs and semi precious stones. Perfect blend of Emotions, Art, Architecture & Building Engineering.
Sometimes the best Architecture exists as a remnant, best left as is.
Sheds are great buildings.
Travelling is what I enjoy most. Seeing all the different cultures and buildings around the world never ceases to amaze me.
Architecture has many parallels with bushwalking:
A clear vision is needed, team members with different and compatible skills are required, appropriate tools and equipment need to be used correctly, an ability to overcome obstacles is required, then the thrill of achieving the desired goal is the ultimate reward.
Certain places touch our spirit and soul more than others. My passion for travel has taken me to many such fascinating places. This little town in the Austrian alps is no exception.
My two passions, travel and Disney!
I love discovering Melbourne's street art.
The world is beautiful, let’s all help maintain it.
Travelling parts of the world gives you an appreciation for the intricacies and beauty of cultural differences.
Behind closed doors, there's always so much life to learn about. If there's something I wouldn't turn my back to is the opportunity to open the door to someone's life and get to know them better. We all have so much to tell! It's up to me to ask the questions.
I have a strong interest in geometry and how shapes can become repetitive tessellation patterns that satisfy my self-diagnosed OCD... don’t challenge me in Tetris.
Hiking and running not only bring me back to nature, but also encourage me to step out of my comfort zone and be energetic in my everyday life.
Stay passionate and never stop exploring.
Sometimes I’m pondering the degree in which architecture can affect positive change in society and for its people. Other times I’m trying to figure out if keeping a pet alpaca in my Richmond townhouse is a logistic and ethical possibility.
Family is everything. There is nothing better than being together, sitting down and enjoying a wholesome homemade and home grown meal in the sun with a glass of wine.
