What inspired you to be an interior designer?
I love seeing clever designs in everything in life, from packaging to huge commercial spaces. I knew I wanted that interesting challenge in my day to day work.
If they were to make a toy action figure of you, what would your accessory be?
A beautiful bag (maybe a backpack as I might be flying) filled with amazing gadgets
To what degree have you actually controlled the course your life within the design world has taken?
In some ways, very little as we only take on a few numbers of projects each year and all of our clients come as recommendations from previous clients. I like to think through the skills and techniques I have learnt is because I wanted to be the best designer I could be.
What would be your dream interior project?
I would like to design a beach house from scratch
What’s something you know you do differently than most people?
Gosh, I couldn't say I'm the only one, but I pride myself on making my designs beautiful and user-focused, whilst keeping them as cost-effective as possible.
If you could go back in time and speak to your adolescent self, what advice would you give them about the design world?
Don't ever be afraid of doing something you have never done before
