I am an architect who has combined academic and professional practice in equal measure since 2002. My training at Victoria University of Wellington included visual arts at Penn State University, urban design in Rome, and cross-disciplinary practice at Harvard University. After graduating, I worked in Boston, New York, and Amsterdam before starting Kebbell Daish Architects with my former teacher, John Daish. Both my academic and professional practices continue to explore the connections between visual arts, architecture, and urban design. This was the subject of my PhD which I did at RMIT in Melbourne, during which time I was also a Research Fellow at the University of Westminster in London. I am a Fellow of the New Zealand Institute of Architects.
