Personal profile

I pride myself on my hands-on design approach, incorporating excellent illustrating hand-sketching and analytical skills. I have 5 years of experience in teaching and 5 years of practice from Malaysia and the United Kingdom. I have a PhD specialisation in making social public spaces in the sky. It is a new branch of urban design knowledge that could potentially grew into becoming an important theory and practice in the industry.
