Why choose me?

Here are six reasons.


Since 1978 I have been a full time conservation architect based in Brisbane, working on all sorts of places for all sorts of clients. Nobody else in practice here has that depth of experience.

I’m small, in a good way

I operate as a solo practitioner. My practice is a small, flexible business in which I do the work, instead of supervising other people. There's no Department of Human Resources Man­age­ment here, just a single expert. I’ll fit right into your team.


I have won a swag of them in the past, but now I’d rather serve as an awards judge than a recipient.


All the facilities I need are here​—​a library of books, a kit of cameras and, it goes without saying, a crash of computers.


I am a conservation architect because this work is important to me and I want to do it as well as I can. I’m a bit of a perfectionist, and I work all hours on each project until it’s right​—​this can be a curse, but I keep reality in sight


I add writing, photography and graphic design to my core ar­chi­tec­tur­al skills. And I can turn my hand to web design, as you can see on this very website.
