Before re-joining LDA Design in 2021, I was in New Zealand, working as a landscape architect and designing streetscapes, public parks and residential projects in and around the North Island. My time there taught me the importance of understanding the social, spiritual and cultural significance of place by listening and learning from people connected to it.
Prior to NZ, I developed designs for Battersea Power Station and Strand Aldwych. I’m thrilled to be back and enjoying being part of the teams on Twickenham Riverside and Portsmouth City Centre North.
I’m currently living outside of London and relishing those long country walks to a village pub. I also love skiing, cooking and live music.
Tracing paper is my best friend, as well as an assortment of coloured pens.
