Thomas Ward

[email protected]

B.A.S, M.Arch (Prof) Hons.

Often spotted wearing a button-up shirt and munching peanut butter on toast, Thomas is one of I Am Developer’s founding Directors. His hunger for good design and medium-density housing comes from a potent blend of architectural training and hands-on experience. Come in for a slice of toast and a chat about how we can help you with your future development.

Jess is half founding director, half real estate guru, and somehow considers a decaf with hazelnut milk a real coffee. You’ll find her sniffing out a good deal, supporting other women in property or on the end of a paintbrush with her daughter, Flossie.


Ella Hope

[email protected]


It’s said our marvellous creator can look around corners to see ideas. Ella’s seamless creativity is the golden thread that binds our work, vision and words together. And if this wasn’t enough to keep her busy, you can find her at the theatre juggling her writing and acting skills.


Tane Pamatatau

Our resident deep thinker is a third-year architecture student who already holds a philosophy degree. Tane’s critical eye sharpens our thought processes and designs by always challenging convention (and always asking why. I mean, ALWAYS).
