I entered the profession through a love of the natural world and of good design, graduating from the University of Gloucestershire in 2008, today these two interests steer and inspire me each day.

I started out on Lottery-funded park restorations in the north-east of England, enjoying community engagement and designing several large-scale ‘Landscapes for Play’. Later, I moved south and worked on exciting schemes in London, including the 2012 Olympic Athletes Village and King’s Cross Central.

I develop sustainable landscape strategies for projects, focusing on low-carbon-mile material selections and drought tolerant ecological planting design, in place of long-established go to materials and practices. I find ideas around rewilding fascinating and am interested to see how lessons learnt observing these complex natural processes could boost ecological value in more urban landscape settings.

My favourite green space is ...

Place des Vosges, Paris. Just a beautifully balanced green space integrating art and play, and surrounded by spectacular historic architecture.

I love the view from ...

Helvellyn, looking back down over Ullswater.

The last books I read were ...

‘Rebirding’ by Benedict Macdonald, it’s a strategy for nature recovery through rewilding Britain and its birdlife, and ‘The Compleat Angler’ first published in 1653! It’s a story about a beautiful river and a skilled angler teaching a novice.
