My parents told me that when I was a baby the only thing that would settle me down was if I was taken outdoors. I would look around at the trees and listen to the sounds and calm down immediately. I have a strong connection to the environment and believe that the spaces we live in really affect our emotions. I was lucky to grow up with a Grandmother who was an artist so I explored arts and crafts from an early age. I am a creative, big picture thinker and have always enjoyed solving problems and making things with my hands. By the time I was in Senior School I gravitated towards design and studied both Architecture and Industrial Design. This led me to complete the Bachelor of Built Environment (Architecture) at University of Canberra this year. Over the last three years I have expanded my knowledge in all aspects of architecture and urban design. I have developed great skills in CAD using Rhino and really enjoyed 3D printing studio models. I am looking forward to the future and to expanding my skill set.
