Whilst I am a proud New Zealander, I grew up in Australia where I was educated and spent the first 20+ years of teaching. I have always loved the workshop and design spaces in my schools where students are encouraged to be both skilled craftspeople and creative thinkers. Discovery College is wonderfully resourced to provide opportunities to all students to showcase their best design thinking. Having a construction and architectural drafting background, I have designed and built a number of houses, with a focus on sustainability. I believe we have a duty through design to care for the finite resources we enjoy. My passion is travelling, I started travelling around Asia, especially in China a few years ago. Now working in HK gives unique opportunities to continue that.
