I joined LDA Design in 2022 as a landscape architect and urban designer. My experience ranges from site-specific landscape design proposals to new settlement masterplans and town regeneration strategies.

I also teach part-time at the Manchester School of Architecture on the MA Architecture and Urbanism course, where I lead the studio ‘Delta Urbanism’, which explores the relationships and interactions between people and nature in urban environments. I also periodically teach at the Landscape Department of the University of Sheffield.

My design approach combines academic rigour with practice experience, adapting different methodologies to explore new ideas and strategies for sustainable urban environments.

In my spare time, you will find me being active in the city, bouldering at weekends or creative when cooking. I am passionate about sailing and enjoy being on the water to discover new horizons.


My favourite urban space is …

The streets of Haarlem. It is engaging to see how the smallest of streets successfully incorporates a diverse ecosystem and active use by people, contributing to the quality of life in urban environments.

What is your secret superpower at work?

Using hand sketching to communicate complex and creative ideas.

The last book I read was …

'Intermediate Natures' by Michele Desvigne. He describes how the transformation of the landscape can be captured through the highlighting of successive phases.
