What makes me unique?
I have always been immersed in the building industry. From the age of six, my father, a highly skilled carpenter, took me onto building sites and showed me how he constructed roofs, fitted windows, hung doors and taught me how to use his tools to produce a high quality finished product.
At the age of 14, I had experienced working with architects at Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners, Building Control officers, the Planning Application team, Tree Preservation Officers and by the age of 15, I had completed my first successful planning application.
Between 16 and 17, I completed an A level in 3D design and was given lots of freedom with a woodworking workshop and CAM lasercutter and became very confident in making models to a professional level. For that course, my coursework and exam project achieved 100% of the available marks.
Worked as an architectural assistant for TWJ Drawings.
Designed and constructed an annexe and extension.
Independently completed multiple planning applications which have all been approved.
Designed and completed technical constructions plans, elevations and sections for a Spanish Vermouth bar as well as a full digital 3D model.
Spent a week working with my local Planning Application team
Spent a week working with my local Building Control team
Spent 2 weeks at Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners, working on my own conceptual project.

I love to listen to and play music on the piano and drums. I was trained classically on the piano and worked my way up to grade 5 by the age of 15. I still play in my free time.
Here is a picture of me just before running a half marathon in 2017. I also enjoy kickboxing and karate and earned my black belt after 10 years at the age of 16.
I also love to create art. Here is an oil painting I completed in 2018, and the image to the right shows when I won the prize for best sketchbook in first year of university.
