About me
I’m an Interior Designer, Lecturer, Careers Mentor and Diversity Advisor based in London. I’m an Associate Lecturer at The Royal College of Art, London on the MA Interior Design Course and a Visiting Lecturer at The Interior Design School, London. My experience as a creative within the built environment spans three decades, initially working as an Interior Designer in several sectors. Coupled with my dedication for sharing my design experience and mentoring talent, I established Design Career Consulting in 2019, providing comprehensive career advice services to private clients, practices and universities. I also volunteer for the British Institute of Interior Design (BIID) and United In Design. I’m also a Visiting Lecturer at The Interior Design School, London. My lecturing has also included career talks for Manchester Metropolitan University, Heriot-Watt University, UAL Central Saint Martins, Nottingham Trent University and The University of Plymouth. As a keynote speaker, presenter and moderator, I regularly participate in The London Design Festival, London Design Week and Clerkenwell Design Week. I am a jury member for the DNA Paris Awards and International Property Awards, in addition to being a Patron of The Design Museum, London to support the industry and celebrate design.

    In collaboration with my fellow practitioners, through a curated series of tutorials, lectures and workshops, I educate the MA Interior Design students at the Kensington campus within the SuperMATTER platform.
