During a seven year stop-over in NYC, living in high              priced and confined conditions; was where I developed my passion, partly out of necessity,            to design furniture and products to help create the best living environment in the least space.

           After designing and building many interior                                        structures and various pieces of furniture for friends and associates, I enrolled at                                           Parsons University and completed an extensive Furniture Design History Degree and                                               Construction course, developing my knowledge and abilities.


            Returning to Australia in 2002, I                                                                     furthered my studies, now as   an Industrial designer, at the Sydney                                                                      Design Institute and have since  been working in the industry as a                                                                         freelancer and design professional, 
until starting my own practice,                                                       'Bcompact design', in 2011.
