About Me

I am an Architect - I am a creator - I am a problem solver.


I am originally from Johannesburg in South Africa and now reside in Utrecht. I completed my first architectural thesis in 2009 at the University of Pretoria in the capital of South Africa. During my tenure in Johannesburg, I was a registered professional architect specialising in affordable housing for private developers. I mainly worked on large scale projects and new community creation.


Since COVID emerged at the beginning of 2020, I decided to embark on a new chapter of my professional life: creating a successful career in Europe, as I have dual citizenship to the Netherlands and South Africa. 

During 2021 I was academically occupied in the fields of Architecture, Urbanism, Climate Action, Sensory Intelligence and Global Housing - taking full advantage of the global lockdown in Dublin, Ireland by completing my second masters degree. At the end of 2021 I moved to the Netherlands to join my family. 

I am an Architect who has found a renewed interest in blending technology and methodology with sustainability to improve the efficiency of the built environment. However, I consider myself an enthusiastic entrepreneur and will hopefully continue developing my profession into different sectors of the built industry.

Cities are places people go to find themselves. A city needs to provide a space for your evolution - if the city is broken, you will feel broken too.
