Biography


My passion for designing gardens and outdoor spaces stem from my early years growing up with a leafy and vibrant garden at home. A place of belonging and a sense of wellbeing, it was there I believe my appreciation for natural surroundings and lush tranquil settings began.

Having spent some years studying business management and working in managing roles I made the shift across into the Horticultural industry where I felt I truly belonged and could make a difference. I studied at Swinburne University and it is there I completed and hold a diploma in Landscape Design and Diploma of Horticulture, I have worked in the Horticultural and Landscaping industry for the last decade and during that time, have amassed a wealth of experience and resolve for designing gardens that transcend imagination.

Everyday there is something new to learn or a better way in which to integrate nature into what we do and that is what I love about my role as a designer, I have spent a number of years developing and refining my skills as a garden designer and with a strong background in plant selection and knowledge of natural building materials my approach to each design is unique from the next and my desire to create and imagine something completely fresh and innovative is a key driver in how we work.
