I guess you are wondering what makes me qualified to talk about SketchUp and the interior design industry.
Well, since a young age, I’ve always redesigned floor plans and dreamed of houses renovated to their full potential.
Whether it was my childhood home, our extended families beach shack, or a renovation project with friends when I was 4!
See, my grandfather was a carpentry teacher at Swinburne University in Melbourne. And he also drafted house plans on the side for neighbours and friends, and even designed his own family home.
In that time, I completed my interior design training at Swinburne VIC in 1999 and went on to work for the likes of Barstudio, Batessmart Architects, The Buchan Group, Greg Natale Design, and Designinc.
So, it’s fair to say the love for creation, design, drawing, and renovation is in my blood. And this all-consuming thought process coupled with natural drawing abilities evolved into a career in interior design, which has spanned decades.
