I qualified as an architect in 2008 and have worked in practices with a residential and public realm focus, and on award winning RIBA competitions for housing and public realm schemes.
I am now working on a variety of urban design and masterplanning projects at LDA Design and enjoy working on larger scale projects. Recently this has involved producing Design Codes for Maldon District Council and North Ely, and illustrative masterplans as part of Outline Planning Applications, together with accompanying Design & Access Statements and consultation events for local residents.
At both the strategic and detailed design stages of the project I enjoy considering how the scheme will best work for those who will spend time day-in, day-out living there.
In my spare time I enjoy cycling, football and attempting DIY.
It would have more bike racks and fewer potholes!
