"The notion of creating a space that has the potential to have a positive and lasting impact on others is extremely rewarding."
I grew up in Perth, Western Australia – a city perhaps best known for its relaxed lifestyle and beautiful beaches, but which architecturally has also undergone a vibrant transformation over the past decade. Throughout my childhood I embraced my creativity, particularly through music and craft. It was in high school however, that my studies and growing interest in technical graphics began to suggest a career in architecture may be calling…

I began my Architectural studies at the University of Western Australia in 2006. With the majority of our studio projects sited in and around the Perth CBD, I began to appreciate the potential our ‘sleepy’ city had. I was fortunate to spend my first three years post university working at HASSELL, who were at the forefront of some of the most exciting developments in Perth and interstate. Working within multi-disciplinary teams allowed me to collaborate with Landscape Architects, Planners and Interior Designers – giving me the opportunity to develop design solutions for complex projects with experts from related disciplines.

In 2012 I did as most Australians do and took some time off work to explore Europe. Immediately taken by the excitement radiating from London, I made the move from across the globe in 2014, and for the past three years I have had the pleasure to call RPP my home. During that time, I have been part of the 1 and 6 Merchant Square tender teams, and most recently delivered a successful planning submission for Castlewood.
