APPROACH

Drawing on community development principles and occupational science, I consult on urban development,  community projects and corporate initiatives.  I apply a conscious approach to programme design, placemaking and product development that prioritises well-being by:
  • Promoting meaningful human engagement
  • Creating sustainable and inclusive environments
  • SERVICES

    Research and collaborative design towards more inclusive communities and spaces. My work aims to balance form and function with principles of conscious design for outcomes that are beautiful and most meaningful to those we design for.
