With a PhD and University Medal in Interior Architecture, Alanya intends to use her design skills to enhance the North Sydney built environment. Alanya is currently an Associate Lecturer in Design Practice at UNSW and her research focus is workplace strategy.
Alanya grew up in Neutral Bay and has been a resident of the North Sydney municipality for over 24 years. Alanya now lives at the heart of Tunks Ward with her husband and two young children and seeks to represent the interests of local families. Improved sporting facilities and childcare options are a priority.
Environmental issues are also particularly important to Alanya, who is keen to see North Sydney adopt an organics waste recycling program to reduce our municipality's impact on landfill.
Alanya is fluent in French after working for three years in Paris for Pritzker Prize winning architect Christian de Portzamparc. Alanya also has experience as both a strategist and interior architect for the Australasian design practice Geyer.
Alanya attended Neutral Bay Primary School many years ago, and her two children will soon attend Middle Harbour Public School.
