What is your favourite work of landscape architecture?
I love working with childcare, kindies and schools and helping bring nature play into their spaces. I love helping them see their space with new eyes and empowering them to see its potential.
What words of advice would you offer people early in their career?
Not every practice is for you. Don't be afraid to move around and experience several places before you find one that really resonates with you. Try different types of work. Explore different areas and you will find your place in the industry.
Favourite childhood play memory and how old you were at the time of your memory?
My favorite childhood memory is probably more of a space than a specific memory. We use to play in the adventure playground in the town we use to live. I would have been between 3 to 10 years old when we played in this playground. It was all made of metal. They had huge metal slides which got so hot in summer and you flew off the end. A big spinning top the whole family could get in and sin around. A giant rocking horse. We spent a lot of time as a family riding our bikes to the park and playing.
Are you reading anything or listening to a podcast you would recommend?
I am currently listening to the Invisible Woman by Caroline Criado Perez and I think it should be required reading for every designer, engineer, architect, planner, everyone. I am not even halfway through and it has put a different perspective on what I have been taught, what I design, and how I design.
What is your favourite outdoors activity?
Bushwalking, I love it being in nature, exploring new things, and seeing new places.
