I work across the architecture and humanitarian development disciplines, to collaboratively create projects that shape our built and socio-spatial environments.

Through my architectural practice NMprojects I create culturally and environmentally responsive residential and public works that shape places for people. Recently I co-founded emerging social impact design studio Of_Substance. From here I explore research-based practises towards spatial justice in our built environment, with a special focus on decolonial and participatory methods.

In 2020, I am Monash Innovation Fellow within the Department of Architecture. My research and teaching through this role, focusses on rethinking "community-led" recovery of built environments in the regional Victorian context, following the recent bushfires in East Gippsland / Gunaikurnai-Bidawel Country.

Say hello to me here.

I acknowledge the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin nation as the traditional owners of the lands on which we meet, work, live and thrive. I recognise that sovereignty over the land has never been ceded, and pay my respects to Elders past, present and emerging.
