Meet the experts behind your next dream home
Other than architecture my favourite things in the world are travelling, the outdoors, personal development and hanging out with my gorgeous family. I love feeling free and adventurous, exploring new places, the open road, and a glass of wine.
I love hearing a good story, sharing our lives and photos, listening to music and dancing with old friends, new friends… just dancing. OK, 80s music is my favourite.
Most days? I start by watching the sunrise. Then a morning beach walk, a podcast and cappuccino… gets me off to a good start. Except Saturdays, my latest morning ritual yoga class at my sisters. There’s always a giggle as we attempt to hold impossible body poses for lengthy periods until someone farts! The older I get the more I realise how important a good laugh is. 😊
OPERATIONS & MARKETING MANAGER
After eight years as a radio journalist, I joined my mum Mel at Funky Little Shack. I'm probably best described as a major geek with a creative mind and an eye for detail.
I love gaming and rugby league, especially my beloved Gold Coast Titans. I adore spending time with my gorgeous partner, and hanging with friends. But my biggest passion is tabletop roleplaying games, investing most of my spare time into creating fantasy worlds in Dungeons & Dragons.
I am also a music fanatic, obsessively updating my playlists with the latest tunes. And making the yearly pilgrimage to the music festival Splendour In The Grass has become a tradition, with some of my best memories made among the fields of Yelgun.
A Chilean graduate architect, I followed my adventurous spirit by moving to Australia nine years ago. I promised my family that I'd come back after a year, but I fell in love with this country to the point of becoming an Australian citizen a few years later.
My motto is to be happy and positive, enjoying life and making my dreams come true. I am a social butterfly, so it’s common to run into me at different events or trendy places in Brisbane.
I'm a self-confessed crazy cat lady without owning a cat. I'm a wine lover. My every attempt to cook should be featured in Gordon Ramsay's Roasting Dishes. I enjoy hiking, geeking on mindset/business books, and I'm very proud of my collection. My friends say I'm a weirdo because I don't have a TV. But they can’t deny that I'm probably better entertainment than any reality show.
I love nothing more than starting my day with a good coffee (the occasional sleep in if I’m being honest), spending time outside being active with family and friends, and ending the day with a nice glass of wine.
On my days off you’ll find me working on our house, which is an ongoing work in progress, out by the water with my husband and two beautiful kids, or out riding my horse.
For as long as I can remember I’ve always lived and breathed all things design in any shape or form, from art and fashion to architecture and interiors and everything in between.
When I'm not building, cutting, hammering, or testing something, you’ll see me out catching a wave along the Casuarina Coast.
I have a 30 year history in building renovation, landscaping and development. I have a natural creativity, love a hands on approach, and I pour myself into unique and challenging projects. I've even built boats in the past.
With a passion for energy efficiency, recycling and conservation, I am a go-to man for the latest in innovative efficient building materials and eco-systems. I love a good conversation about sustainability, and offering advice on the most efficient ways to run a home.
