My professional history is rich and varied. I have worked with a number of firms in the capacity of architectural technician, designer, project lead, client relations, operations manager, business development and bookkeeping/accounts management. I co-founded an architectural practice in 2008, I’ve led my own design firm for a number of years and have ventured into property development.
I have spent 2 years as president of a mid-size construction firm in a partner-track position. My goal was to integrate a general contracting firm with my design practice to take advantage of efficiencies and control for both client and self-driven projects.
My capabilities in both the architectural and construction aspects of large, public and private sector building projects equip me well to bring effective, efficient communication, decisive leadership and quality workmanship to your projects. One result is schedules that stay on track thereby protecting profits and strengthening relationships with clients, consultants and trades. Another is meaningful end-user experience through the effective realization of concept as a product of insightful design decisions and resourceful contract administration. My in-depth
understanding of the construction industry has given me a renewed enthusiasm for bringing my skills to bear on increasingly complex design projects.
I am drawn to projects that are collaborative, organised and with a strong implementation and delivery process. I believe that a harmonious team environment is key to realizing successful projects and look forward to productive work together.
