As a teen I was called to take part in an aptitude test to start the process of acceptance to Architecture School. I remember that the multiple choice paper had 3d diagrams and next to each of them were options of how that shape would look if it’s faceted surfaces were flattened out. The correct options either jumped out at me or I worked out the more difficult ones by closing my eyes and unfolding them in my mind. I was surprised by this and remember thinking 'maybe I really could do this design thing'. Later I got called for interview at that school but ultimately I was not offered a place. The 16 year old me found the whole process quite daunting. On the day, one of the members of the interviewing panel asked me what I had noticed about the entrance to the building we were in. I choked. My mind was blank. I couldn’t give the answer he was looking for because I hadn’t noted things like how many steps led up to the main door. I had been too nervous, too pre-occupied with my feelings of anxiety. This episode was formative because it was from that point that I began a life long path to understand not just design but also energy, thoughts, feelings, social conditioning and the psychology of space
I holistically use my full range of skills, wisdom and gifts in order to help others in a practical way.
I am centred in a belief that anything in this world of form benefits from a conscious and holistic approach.
