After becoming an architect, I decided to dive into landscape architecture. I found it fascinating to explore creative ways in which landscape design may respond to place, the potential for generating imaginative and sustainable places where people and nature thrive.

I have been involved in several international and UK projects. Highlights so far include: Brabazon, the first residential phase of historic Filton Airfield redevelopment in Bristol; Barangaroo South in Sydney, Australia; Tianjin Friendship Park in China; Project Tawny in Porto, Portugal; and New Regent’s College in London.

I am currently working on an exciting opportunity to create a distinctive urban village next to the historic Sutton Harbour in Plymouth.

Out of work, I am getting more and more into drawing, which alongside my passion for live music and travelling is becoming a great source of inspiration and escapism.


As a Landscape Architect, who has inspired you?

Joao Nuñes. He was my professor at university on a landscape architecture module. His design approach and focus on sustainability lead me to expand my interests on this discipline.

I love the view from ...

The plane when it lands in Venice Airport, when I go back home. The rooftops, steeples and the intricate pattern of channels, salt marshes, and tidal flats is mesmerizing. Always book a seat to the right-hand side, I recommend it!

The last book I read was ...

'The Salt Path’ by Raynor Winn, a novel based on a true story about loss, endurance and the healing power of nature, set along the South West Coast Path.
