Hello! I am an Architect and Interior Designer based on the beautiful Central Coast of NSW, Australia.
A creative problem solver, I am energised by working with home owners and businesses to guide their projects through to fruition.
I graduated with a Bachelor of Architecture from Unitec Institute of Technology in Auckland, New Zealand and practised within a boutique firm before moving to Australia. I then worked on a broad range of projects both in Australia and China prior to becoming a Retail Design Manager. My 7 years of working with Westfield as a Retail Design Manager added to the depth of my business understanding. During this time, I took a national role as a Retail Account Manager. Managing 30 brands across the country, I worked closely with the retailers senior management teams to build trusted relationships, facilitate discussions and planning for their asset and development, and ultimately lead design negotiations for new retail concepts and nationally approved roll-outs.
Passionate about the arts and design education, I have completed my Cert IV in Training & Assessment
As a hobby, I craft highly detailed pieces under the hither (objects+creative) brand.
WHAT IS HITHER?
Hither simply means "here" or "to this place"... It celebrates the deep connection people have with places, it speaks of journey, context and time. I am a strong advocate for design being driven by context and believe the best results come from a considered an collaborative approach.
Please email me to discuss any projects you may have. I look forward to hearing from you!
