What do you love about being an Architect? 

The greatest aspect of being an architect to me is the problem solving of creating a visually appealing building, that is functional to both the occupier and the surrounding environment. To witness our clients enjoying their new homes is an incredible feeling. 

Favourite book to read by the pool?
A sudoku puzzle book!

Favourite place to soak up the sun?
Has to be the local beach on a summers morning, before the hustle and bustle ramps up

What makes a good community for you?
Friendly people and a like-minded vibe between everyone. We’re fortunate Avalon is a creative community filled with small business and some hidden gems in the coffee, bar and food scene. 

You like techno. What’s your favourite band or DJ!?
I often go down some vortex’s with music. Currently been playing a bit of Park Hye Jin, Ross from Friends, Four Tet, Joy Orbison, DJ Boring to name a few. Looking forward to King Krule’s new album too.
