My main professional interests are planting design, public realm design and I have been with LDA Design since 2013. Projects have included the restoration of historic parks including Wicksteed Park, Kettering, Boultham Park, Lincoln and Hanley Park, Stoke on Trent. I have helped to develop new parks, such as Elms Field in Wokingham, as part of town centre regeneration. I have also worked on the Reserved Matters Process and Design Codes for Gilden Way, Harlow, and a flood alleviation scheme for Steeple Bumpstead.
After finishing my degree in Germany in 2005, my first job in the UK was with Landscape Town. I went on to join The Landscape Partnership, working on projects in the retail sector, and then James Blake Associates to work in the residential sector.
In my spare time I enjoy singing, gardening, skiing and other outdoor pursuits.
