I am an architectural designer with a specified focus in generative design. Additionally I have strong interests in photography, digital design, digital fabrication, scale modelling, web-design, graphic design and anything along the lines of creativity. I am a recent Masters of Architecture (Prof) Graduate of Victoria University, Wellington where my concluding years had a focus on algorithmic [ parametric ] logic and generative design.

2D / Other
June – December 2014Internationally renowned Dutch based Architects
Required to think parametrically and construct adaptive, generative models. These highly detailed models must be robust and responsive to change with the simultaneous calculation of dynamic forms.
Professional Visual Presentations
Responsible for visual composition of Competition / Tender Submissions.
File to Factory
All parametric systems must directly communicate to fabrication techniques. The manufacturing process must be an extension of the design process; it must inform the design and therefor the final solution is easily realised to building components and homogenous, non-standard building systems.

January – March 2010Internationally renowned Wellington based Architects
Sketched, photographed measured and recorded the specifications of the a prestigious Wellington School Hall. The documented specifications outlined architectural elements such as water mains and piles and were used to assist in the preparation of a demolition quote, to inform the design of the new complex and to build a digital model.
Built a 1:50 scale site model for a new building at Massey University Wellington. It included a contoured site plan and surrounding context and buildings. The result was a high quality model that was used to demonstrate the design proposal to the clients.
