David has over 10 years blended experience within the architecture and property development industry, with cross sector working knowledge of commercial, public, and residential buildings. David graduated with a BIntB, BArch & MArch from Bond University, Abedian School of Architecture. He has worked for practices such as BVN, HASSELL, MODE and Bureau^Proberts.

David’s passion for architecture has grass roots beginnings when his family started building houses on the Gold Coast in the late 1980s. He is excited about good design that captures a sense of place, spaces that can evoke memories and phenomenological experiences that architecture brings, such as touch, sound, materials, light and shadow – an encounter of our senses.
