About me

OUTLOOK I believe that a holistic approach to design is essential in order for the built environment to successfully perform following ecological sustainability principles. By creatively integrating these principles with emerging design possibilities and technology, a symbiotic and improved relationship between the built and natural environment can be achieved. RESUME I have over three years of formal work experience as a technical and project architect, with responsibilities encompassing end-to-end product, B2C and B2B architectural project development from concept to legal detailing to execution planning, pre- and post-occupancy surveys for energy-efficiency and recommendations for climatically responsible design, among other. These experiences have encompassed a gradual increase in tasks and responsibilities, often in rapidly changing, multi-disciplinary environments; my role has also included developing and implementing methodologies for department growth, organisation and team building.
