WORK EXPERIENCE Since graduating, I have been working as a freelance private tutor for adult Bachelors and Masters architecture and interior architecture students.

ARCHITECTURAL ASSISTANT 24 MONTHS (SEPT 2013 - SEPT 2015)

Assisted project architects on two high-end private residences under construction in Mayfair and Belgravia. Over the course of six months I was based on site, where I gained valuable on-sight experience working alongside construction workers of various disciplines. Project Name: 21 Upper Grosvenor Street, Mayfair | RIBA Stages: 3 - 5 | Project Value: £8m Project Name: 8 Wilton Crescent, Belgravia | RIBA Stages: 3 - 5 | Project Value: £10m

Assisted the project architect and undertook a lead design role on the Boons Park project - a large scale private dwelling in Kent, where I was chiefly responsible for research and design of historically accurate bespoke Georgian era doric order details for both the overall aesthetic of the proposal, and for the external cladding details. My detailed designs were then used by the appointed stone masons to create a proposal for the external finishing of the house. Project Name: Boons Park | RIBA Stages: 2 - 4 | Project Value: £9m

I am an ambitious, hightly motivated, confident and reliable professional. Since graduating from my Part 1 at the University for the Creative Arts, I spent two years working for a small, high-end residential practice in London, where I worked on a variety of private residences from stages 2 to 5. Over the past two years I have been completing my MArch at the University of Westminster, from which I have now graduated with distinction.In first year, I was part of Design Studio 10, and my interests lay in the research of radical gemoetric systems. For my second year, I was part of Design Studio 18, in which I focused on the unknowable architecture of spirituality and the mind, using ground breaking technologies and computational techniques in order to reinterpret and interrogate our defintion of architectural space. I am also exceedingly interested in taking an active role within architectural academia, and have been invited on numerous occasions to be a guest on critique panels at the University of Westminster for the MArch and BA Architecture courses, as well as for the BA in Interior Architecture.
