Ahead of founding Studio Arkay, I worked on various residential, mixed-use & office schemes in award-winning London Architecture firms, including Allford Hall Monaghan Morris (AHMM) & PDP London Architects. Prior to that, I studied at Leicester, Liverpool & Westminster Schools of Architecture respectively.

My master’s dissertation exploring Yerevan’s urban development won several awards, most notably the prestigious RIBA President’s Medal, in 2016. I have been a member of the RIBA 'Education Development Group' since 2018, focussing on the assessment of grants & recognition - such as the Student Support Fund, AHR Scholarship & Annie Spink Award. I am also an architecture design tutor at Loughborough University & have been a visiting guest critic at the University of Liverpool.
