I qualified as a town planner and urban designer in 2005, when I moved from Germany to the UK. Since then, I have worked on many different schemes, ranging from public realm projects such as Cabot Circus in Bristol to wider-scale regeneration projects in Cardiff and the South Wales Valleys.
I am now a senior urban designer in the Oxford office, where I am involved in masterplans and framework plans of various scales and contexts, from planning applications to initial capacity studies and promotional material that will help bring forward development in a sustainable way.
I am enthusiastic about creating attractive, liveable and sustainable places and love the variety of projects and topics that I get to work on.
In my spare time, I like to be out and about with my family, to see places and meet friends, and I try to exercise as much as I can.
