I'm an Interior Designer based in Hackney, East London.

I spent over ten years managing major projects in the public sector, including work on the 2012 Olympic Games. As a result I have an astute eye for budgets and a keen attention to detail.

During that time I also gained loads of experience refurbishing property - some good, some bad. I know what it’s like to have a job and no time to manage builders. I’ve sat in an office pretending to work whilst dealing with a crisis on site. And I know how the excitement of choosing furnishings can wane when faced with the relentless decision making required to keep a project on track.

I believe that interior design can be completely transformative: making a space work for the way you live, crafting surroundings which give rest and energy, choosing furnishings which reflect who you are. I also know that it can be time-consuming and stressful.

I completed Interior Design training at Central St Martins and set up my business in 2015 with the aim of supporting you through the renovation process. To help you make the right design decisions. To be on site when you can’t. To obsess over the details and keep track of the budget so you don’t have to. To deliver a space which feels exactly you.

I work with a team of skilled builders and other specialist trades, as well as architects, structural engineers, building control surveyors, party wall surveyors, photographers, stylists and a wide network of suppliers.
