What do you enjoy the most, working in the field of construction & development?
No day is ever the same. New challenges, meeting new people and seeing my designs come to life. There are no limits to what designers can do and I am never limited in that area. I hope to inspire other designers to be different, bold and unique with their designs and not to be afraid of creating something unusual.
What are your biggest achievements in your field?
Throughout my career I have been winning kitchen and bathroom design awards. In 2017 I was awarded a highly coveted KBDI Australian Designer of the Year Award and took out several other awards, such as KBDI Queensland Designer of the Year, QLD Small Kitchen Design and QLD Medium Kitchen Design.
