About Me.

Profile

With an extensive background in commercial interior design, I have worked on various fit-outs from a single lawyer’s office to large-scale workplaces, restaurants, bars, schools, and multi-level retirement villages.

I approach each project enthusiastically, seeking to design an innovative space which encourages, enlivens and enriches.

 

With 7+ years designing, documenting / drafting, and project managing, I deliver projects on time, within budget, and ensuring I meet a client’s requirements.

 

My travels throughout Europe, Asia and Australia inspire me to push creative boundaries and trends set within NZ, to design with courage, innovation, and with a focus that has specific consideration of a client, a company, a brand, or a culture.

Intermediate Designer at Spaceworks Design Group

Spaceworks is a multiple award wining design company. The design team figure out what’s important to their client and create “wow” out of every single dollar they have. Each designer is personally invested and will deliver quality all the way to the end.

Here I was immersed in several office, hospitality, education, retail & residential interior design fitouts as an individual designer, autoCAD technician, project manager and client/contractor point of contact, as well as a lead team player in larger scale projects.

May 2012 - June 2015

Spatial and Interior Designer at Outline Design

Outline Design understand that a workspace is an important business tool for their clients, and create beautiful workspaces fitouts.

These are inspiring to look at and to be in, but also they help clients work more productively, more efficiently and more profitably.

I started as a graduate here and after efficiently learning design processes and council requirements, I quickly worked my way up to be a loyal and key designer in the company. The regular-changing team members provided opportunity for me to do this, and to act as the senior designer involved in various projects.
