I have worked at LDA Design for 20 years, and lead multi-disciplinary teams working on infrastructure and development projects including housing, energy and transport.  Recent successes include the Development Consent Order for Swansea Tidal Lagoon, and Outline and Reserved Matters planning consents for a major urban extension at Gilden Way, Harlow.

My ten year career in the legal profession helps me to marry the creative skills needed to develop a compelling vision, narrative and design for a project with the professional rigour for delivery.

Away from work, I spend time cycling, swimming, gardening, painting and, when the opportunity allows, exploring in the UK and abroad.


What’s been your best moment since joining LDA Design?

Winning the LI President’s award for Swansea Tidal Lagoon.

What nearly always works for projects?

Thinking before acting.

What almost never works?

Acting before thinking.
