About me
I am an architect and entrepreneur with a hybrid skill set earned through 14 years experience working in multidisciplinary practices. In built environment, my most recognisable works are in narrative design and brand experience for brands include Heineken, Lexus and Sririraj museum Bangkok. My key roles were creative architect and project manager. In business, I was a founder of HER Coffee in Hackney, where I had built a team of 10 employees then developed HER into a consumer brand with coffee ranges that stocked in Selfridges within 7 years. Having won several start-up loans and a seed investment from VC for both businesses also validated my entrepreneurial ability. Recognisably, HER Coffee became an established space not only for specialty coffee but also its monthly exhibitions and events from local artists that I curated applying my prior experiences. Recently completed my master’s in urban & regional planning with RTPI accredited course, I am pursuing my career back in built environment focusing in place making and city design with sustainability and climate resilience mindset. I’ve learned and gained a priceless experience during my business years, from start-up stage to growing and expanding the business. I managed employees, suppliers as well as my investors (and their expectations). Being entrepreneur set me apart from others and I strongly believe that I can add significant values to the organisation and the team.
