Director, Architecture

Taking up the road to architecture has been the defining decision of my life. I attended NED University for my Bachelor of Architecture Degree some 24 years ago carrying a dream of one day working with ASA. This dream materialized only a year after my graduation.

Architecture has taught me to think about humanity, about growth, about environment and how we are responsible for its creation. I found ASA to be one of those few practices that put emphasis on the importance of balance in the built environment.

I started in the Interior Design department and later moved on into architecture where the projects were of greater size, scale and complexity.  Today I find in myself an inner strength to take the lead yet have the comfort to be that someone that can nurture and nourish fresh talent to give new comers the same chance that ASA gave me as a young architect.
