Stephanie studied and began her career in Brisbane, Australia. Her love of sports architecture is driven by her years playing water polo for Australia at an elite level. This experience as an athlete using sporting venues from around the world has allowed for a unique insight into the functionality and importance of these buildings. She is extremely passionate about creating spaces that facilitate the enjoyment and benefit of the sport.
