With years of industry experience, Paul re-trained and is now an Architectural Technician responsible for the technical documentation of our projects.

Paul has held previous roles in engineering/fabricating, landscape design and construction and is pleased to bring these skills and experience to the team at Sorted Architecture. His passion for design is evidenced by the time he spends designing outside of his job, crafting an array of furniture concepts.
