Batch 1 of Rest Point-68 2.jpg

Aspiring Architect + Caribbean Architectural Historian + Professor.

With an aim to specialise in Caribbean/Tropical Architectural Research and Theory. 

Hello there

I carry a lifelong goal of researching and publishing Caribbean Architectural History, Design and Heritage through visual and written pieces. I am currently interested in gaining experience in architectural education, design, construction documentation, building construction, project management, sustainable design, and historic preservation within the Caribbean's Construction Industry. It is my hope that with this experience, I will be able to explore and express Caribbean Architectural Content from an informed perspective on inception, design, construction, maintenance and preservation; thereby participating in the field of Architectural Research and Education.

As a highly sensitive person (HSP), I would describe myself as an empathetic ambivert, analytical and passionate individual with a strong appreciation for the world, particularly our region's built-environment. This aspect of my personality often guides my design approach, leading to a pragmatic reverse of the brief as opposed to being a reflection of my wants and needs. Attention and heightened sensitivity to the environment and social context are always present, along with a preservationist mindset. ​As an Architectural Designer in practice, I am loyal to the social context, the people and the environment.

My hobbies include reading fictional and historical content, architectural magazines,  Japanese manga, and comics. My creative outputs are architectural illustrations, beauty/fashion, design and writing.​ Professional Experience / Collaborative Interest in (not listed in preferential order) United Nations, CARICOM, Ministry of Sustainable Development (Saint Lucia + Guyana), A 5-year Apprenticeship under a Senior Architect, University of the West Indies: Research Department, National Trust throughout the CARICOM Region, Commonwealth Association of Architects, World Bank Development Projects.​
