Architecture - MArch - ARB/RIBA Part 2

I was born in Johannesburg, South Africa and moved to the UK In 2011. In 2018 I graduated with a MArch (Masters of Architecture) from the University of Kent.

I consider myself hardworking, punctual and reliable. I am confident in my areas of expertise and am always looking to expand my skills and experience. I am able to work effectively in a team environment and enjoy working collaboratively.

Apart from architecture, my key interests are photography, principally landscape and aerial photography, as well as software development. During my Masters of Architecture I was able to expand and implement my knowledge of coding to produce conceptual design programs. I’m also fascinated with 3D printing and its capacity to allow architects to rapidly prototype and explore complex geometries. During this time I also learnt how to use complex SLA 3D printers and currently own a Formlabs Form2 which I used throughout my masters to develop concept and final models. I currently offer bespoke high resolution 3D printing services. I also enjoy watching and collecting films, attending exhibitions and I enjoy playing sports such as tennis and hockey as well as playing video games which helps me keep in contact with friends back in South Africa.

During and post my degrees I’ve been active in volunteer work, which has included volunteering at Kent Article 25, achieving a bronze award by Kent Union in 2013, and since volunteering as a judge for the Canterbury Society Design Awards 2019.
