Tennyson's proudest achievement is founding an award-winning interior design firm only a few years after graduating from Swinburne's Master of Design (Interior Design) degree.

His firm, Sachi Interior Design, won a Best Interior Design (Showhouse) award at Malaysia’s Designer of the Year Awards 2018. Designing showrooms for Mercedes-Benz is another highlight. His firm designed the first Mercedes-Benz speakeasy café in Malaysia – a hidden space where owners can wait for their car service to be completed. Tennyson describes the project as “a rare and unique experience”.

Tennyson says his lecturers taught him to express himself with confidence and to be able to approach projects from both a creative and business point-of-view.
