Month in review: June 2020

We are already half way through 2020!

Months in review: March and April 2020

Last time I wrote a month in review post I had just got back to work after maternity leave. At that point I was hoping that I would take control of my time, but it didn’t happen quite that way.

On 12th November I left Cairns to atend the International Urban Design Conference in the Gold Coast. From there I flew to Brazil where I participated in an examination panel in my old Architecture and Urbanism School where I did my Masters and was a keynote speaker in an event in the Architecture School where I undertook my Bachelor in Architecture and Urbanism.
