I love working with clients because: Each one is different, with different ideas and visions for their project. I really enjoy my colleagues taking these ideas and transferring them onto paper.

 

Materials that excite me: Not exactly architectural but I love sparkly gemstones, especially the colourful flashes you can see in an Australian opal.
