His international experience while studying multi-generational living in Japan is evident through his approach to mixed-typology housing developments at the intersection of design, culture and tradition inspires his current work.

He applies holistic thinking to leverage design outcomes that focus on integrated sustainability approaches that responds to and respects that natural environment.
