DIA Off The Cuff

Optimists; the colour charcoal; my son Felix

Excuses; the colour teal; cheesecake

Last book that I read
‘Roland Wright, future knight’ by Tony Davis (highly recommended for 6 year old boys!)

Current favourite music CD
‘These Streets’ by Paulo Nutini

My last supper would be
taken under a sun dappled, grapevine clad pergola with a glass of chilled white wine.

Best design I've seen lately
Aston Martin DBS

Worst design I've seen lately
Melbourne Recital Centre ‘indulgent, heavy handed and arrogant’ are the words that spring to mind.

In my spare time
I read, walk, dine, travel and ski

I love design because
I’m passionate about how things look, and amongst other benefits, design can affect this in such a positive way.

If I wasn't a designer
I’d be an architect and get some mileage out of that degree.

If I ruled the world
I’d make international travel compulsory, especially for American politicians.
