To join a fast moving and exciting design company where my creative initiative, ideas and genuine enthusiasm will allow me to progress. I’m looking for a home where my background, experience and skills can be put to use to make things happen.
I enjoy going to exhibitions and galleries and I have a great interest in seeing the work of other designers and architects. I enjoy visiting distant countries and experiencing different cultures. Highlights of my travels include trekking in the world’s oldest rain forest, swimming with sharks and visiting some of the wonders of the ancient world. I also enjoy swimming and cycling and Krav Maga in my spare time.
