Nelson has assumed key and significant roles in the definition and shaping of the tonychi studio’s aesthetic thrust and image this past decade. His extensive architectural input has influenced a body of projects that meet with consistent merit and recognition from the hospitality industry and design community for their commitment to design excellence. 


Nelson was born in the Philippines and raised in West Africa. He was a recipient of many academic awards and citations in fine arts and literature in secondary school, before he moved to the United Kingdom where he received his formal architectural training within a multidisciplinary arts environment at the Glasgow School of Art. He attained a Masters Degree in Architecture from Glasgow University, where student work was part of local and international exhibitions including the Venice Biennale in Italy.
