I graduated from the Edinburgh College of Art with an MSc in Landscape Architecture. I joined LDA Design after gaining experience as a landscape architect working on large-scale urban realm projects, such as the Glasgow Avenues, Accessible Ayr and Ayr Leisure Centre, alongside mixed-use developments and LVIA and EIA projects all over Scotland.
I am a believer in the concept of connecting spaces via physical design and social agency, along with creating sustainable interfaces in which people and nature can successfully interact.
Outside of work, I am involved in a number of musical pursuits, including a music blog, playing guitar in the hip hop fusion group Positive Experience, and curating a monthly radio show on Radio Buena Vida in Glasgow.
Dungeness will always have a special place in my heart. It's absolutely flat, full of shingle, contains some rare and beautiful flora, and has an enormous power station situated at its apex. Definitely weird, and truly breath-taking.
Meandering through the fields around South Hinksey in Oxford in the summertime is particularly special, with the heat making everything feel hazy and alive, yet slow and reflective.
I haven’t finished it yet but I was going through ‘The Hacienda: How Not To Run a Nightclub’, written by ex-New Order bassist Pete Hook – a pretty wild and hilarious read.
