After completing my BA Hons Painting at Edinburgh College of Art, I switched to a master’s in Landscape Architecture at Writtle University College.

I joined LDA Design in 2021 as a consultant landscape architect after receiving the LDA Design Bursary Award and completing an internship. I’m now working on a range of projects, including One Nine Elms and Olympia Way.

My creative background gives me a strong visual and experimental approach to design, creating spaces which resonate and respond to a site’s character and the layers of memory which shape it.

At the weekends, you’ll find me either on a long run, enjoying time with friends in the pub, or spending all my money buying croissants from Oval market.


As a Landscape Architect, who has inspired you?

The painter Anselm Kiefer has always been a huge inspiration of mine, for his ability to capture intense emotional atmosphere within his landscapes. His paintings remind me of the importance of time and memory in the landscape.

My favourite walk is …

Anywhere around the Suffolk countryside – especially on an autumnal day.

The last book I read was …
