Dan joined MCM in 2010. As an Associate Designer, he runs multiple projects and several design teams.
Hardworking and committed, Dan always delivers spaces that reflect the personality of the client. Spaces that go beyond expectations. He loves to be challenged and will go the extra mile, especially when everyone’s pulling in the same direction.
What do you love most about your job?
I love working in a team and creating things together. Everyday is different, with new challenges and opportunities, which is great.
Watching clients and colleagues get excited when they walk into a new space that we’ve designed.
How are you finding working from home at the moment?
Initially it was a bit of a shock…but slowly became the new normal. I thrive on being in a physical room with the team and working through challenges together. Being able to disconnect from work within the home has taken some time to get used to, but not commuting is great. I cannot wait to meet people in person, rather than Zoom, Teams, Skype or the other hundred types.
What should clients expect?
I’m reliable, hardworking, open and honest. I never wake up not wanting to go to work, so you’ll always find me to be a positive influence.
How do you approach challenges?
I bring people together. I want to get everyone involved; discussing options and working out what’s the best possible way forward.
What brings out the best in you?
Working within an ambitious team, surrounded by enthusiastic colleagues who are ready to take on anything.
What’s your proudest moment at MCM?
Am I allowed two? Winning the BCO Fit-out award for Double Negative and completing CBRE’s 9-storey building in the City. Hopefully got the next one in the making at the moment…
What first got you into design?
No idea, I’ve just always been into solving problems and I love to be challenged, and pushed. Architecture gives me all that and more.
If you weren’t a designer, what would you be?
If I wasn’t a designer, I’d live on a beach, join the army, get involved with community projects or be an animator at Pixar. Or perhaps all four.
