I specialise in the masterplanning and visioning of projects at all scales; from urban extensions and new towns, to regeneration projects and port terminals. What I particularly enjoy is the challenge of finding simple and creative solutions to the complex problems encountered throughout the development process.

Since joining in 2006 I have been involved in securing planning consents for over 5,000 new homes and my approach places collaboration at its core, building strong relationships and enthusiasm for a shared set of aspirations with the ultimate goal being the creation of great places that all involved can be proud of.

For me, the creative process always starts with developing a compelling vision for a place.  Many visions never happen, but I believe there are no great places created that didn’t start with a vision.

Spare time is currently spent enjoying being a father to my new born daughter.


My favourite walk is ...

The early morning dog walk through Cookham Village to the River Thames. The local landmarks captured in Sir Stanley Spencer’s paintings still provide a backdrop for village life today, and I love this stretch of river that inspired Kenneth Grahame to write The Wind in the Willows.

My favourite place is ...

Hammarby Sjöstad in Stockholm. A great lesson in placemaking with landscape and built form brought together intuitively to put people in touch with nature.

I love the view from ...

The North Bank at Emirates Stadium whilst watching my beloved Arsenal*
