1. How did you become a designer?

I knew from the age of 16 I wanted to be a designer, so rather than doing A levels I took myself off to Art College and completed a national diploma in Spatial Design. From there I went on to do a 4 year degree course in Interior Design at Middlesex University. 

2. What has been the most interesting project you’ve worked on and why?

A ski chalet in Courchevel 1850

3. What would be your dream project?

To design the interior of a David Collins designed house in Miami. 

4. What are you reading right now?

The White Tiger by Aravind Adiga

5. What do you love doing when you are not working?

I love horse riding and sailing

6. What’s your favourite London hidden gem?

The Victoria Miro Garden in Islington, it’s often used for art installations and it’s stunning. 

7. What’s the one piece of advice you would give to someone starting out their career in design?

Work hard. Stay focused. Be inspired.

8. How important are trends in the work you do?

At David Collins we don’t follow trends, we always start the design concept with a point of reference.
