What word or phrase best sums you up ?

Life is what you make it.

What’s your greatest achievement to date:

Opening my own business

Quick fire questions:

How long have you been a BNI member?  5 months.

What does your company do? Interior / Architecture

What is your job title? Director

What does your role entail, in a nutshell? Project management, company admin, marketing, everything from start to finish!

Why did you decide to take that direction? A few of my projects were getting awards and I was feeling that I wasn’t getting the recognition for my work. After a few years of experience, I was feeling I had gained the knowledge I needed to open my own business.

How do you help your community?

I help people improve their living environment. I help investors increase the return on their investment. I provide a hands off design service for busy people.

What is the most exciting/rewarding aspect of your role?

The creative part of my job is about 10%. The rest of it is admin, management, cad drawing, schedules etc… But when the project comes to an end and I have a happy client I think it was totally worth it.

Why did you join BNI?

One of my former employers is a BNI member and I could see how this helped him grow as people kept recommending his services.

What has BNI done for you?
