I arrived in Wellington by boat in the summer of 1968 and my overriding memory is of the brightly coloured houses peppering the hillsides. This was a major contrast to the predominantly stone grey of the housing of South Wales where I had come from. My interest in housing and buildings began with this lasting image.
My professional experience is grounded in the design of commercial buildings such as Hotel and Hospitality projects. I have more recently had the opportunity to apply this expertise of larger projects to the design of a wide range of building types.
As a Director of the practice I have an overarching responsibility for the quality of work that leaves this office but also have a strong personal involvement in project design
