“Successful design can directly impact the everyday behaviours and lives of people.”

Mattie has been curious about design since a very young age, finding herself constantly creating and drawing. As she grew up, she became excited by the realisation that you can turn this curiosity and passion into a lifelong endeavour and profession.

After living overseas in the United Kingdom amongst beautiful historic buildings for 12 months, Mattie made the decision to return to Australia and study architecture. She is currently completing an Undergraduate Honours Degree in Architecture with a second major in Interior Design at QUT. Mattie counts herself lucky that she gets to learn about design every day and experience the excitement that architecture brings to others.

Mattie would love to one day visit the Barcelona Pavilion By Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. It is a key piece of modernist architecture which has a lot of rich history behind it.

Outside of work you will find Mattie painting, playing sport and spending time outdoors with family and friends.
