I was born and raised in South Africa and started my engineering career as a graduate in the fast-paced city of Johannesburg. I spent 6 years working for a large consultancy in South Africa which afforded me the opportunity to work on a wide variety of projects across the African continent. In 2019 I moved over to Ireland and worked for a consultancy specialising in commercial and residential structures. I spent 18 months in Dublin before moving over to London to join the Civic team. Through my engineering journey thus far I’ve been lucky enough to work on wide variety projects all around the world whilst experiencing new cultures along the way. I believe that all these experiences have contributed, in some way, to the professional I am today. I aim to keep
learning through new experiences and to continue a path of new discovery in both the built environment sector and life in general.
Growing in up in a country and community where large proportions of people endure social and economic hardships, I’ve always been aware of how lucky I am to be afforded the opportunities that have allowed me to develop my career as a professional. The Nguni Bantu term “Ubuntu” (translation: I am because we are) highly resonates with me and I’m currently involved in a few
non-profit organizations that aims to provide young African students with the career prospects I was so fortunate to receive.
