"Architecture is more than a visual art, it is something we engage with on a daily basis and it has the potential to improve people's lives. "
I remember the first art lesson I went to as a child. The teacher stressed the importance of being inquisitive, to understand what it is you are drawing or painting, to look rather than see. I always think back to this as the start of my interest in architecture, since for me architecture is born out of curiosity and the desire to create. Architecture has the potential to improve people's lives, and I am excited to be involved in the design of places which are meaningful to those that use them.

I grew up on the island of Gozo. The Maltese Islands have a history of being conquered, and while this wasn't great for the locals, it left an interesting mark on the architecture I grew up with. While studying Architecture at the University of Malta I spent a semester studying in Rome. I immersed myself the art and architecture of the eternal city, and I traveled around Italy at every opportunity. After graduating I sought to travel and experience life in a different city, and so I moved to Krakow. While there I had the opportunity to work on a piece for the Venice Architecture Biennale, experience Eastern Europe, and learn a bit of Polish. I've always dreamt of living in Scotland, so following Krakow I went on to study at the Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen.

I'm thrilled to be part of the RPP family for the quality of its projects down to the smallest of details, for the exciting studio environment, and for those hard hat days where I get to see drawings come to life on site!
