As space designer and management consultant, I specialise in guiding and facilitating innovation and benefit optimisation, in strategic visions, project planning and solution design, with proven capability in the delivery of complex, fast track and ‘mission impossible’ projects.

My approach involves seeking improvements in resource synchronicity (between people, property, technology), the dissolving of silo thinking and enabling greater collaboration.

As project director, strategic advisor or lead consultant/architect, I provide ways to optimise the relationship between these resources, to bring multiple benefits:
• Reducing cost
• Improving service delivery
• Future proofing agility
• Corporate image
Simultaneously, through an integrated approach.

In my design roles I seek to employ architectural aesthetic devices and visual composition techniques in workspace environments and furniture layouts, to create sense of extra volume, light, comfort and interaction, within highly space efficient interior designs and space planning excellence
