I am a skilled masterplanner and landscape architect with an understanding of how landscape can develop a successful, locally distinctive response to a design brief. I love collaborating in teams to unearth different design narratives that can stitch a new development into its surroundings.

Having two decades of experience means that I can provide insightful advice to clients, consultants, stakeholders and the general public on a broad range of topics from landscape design, site promotion, landscape planning through to engagement, masterplanning and consenting in a rural, coastal, commercial or residential context.

I have bags of passion and energy for designing great places for new and existing communities that are inspired by, and in balance with, the environment. I am an advocate of landscape-led masterplanning where a site’s context and character filters down into the open spaces, streets and squares of a proposal, bringing together people and nature in a place to belong.

When I’m not working I love being with my family, watching films, making things (clothing, lino prints, cakes…) and keeping fit. Ultimately, I want to make our world a better place for them.


My favourite walk is ...

Along the promenade at Sheringham in Norfolk, which means I’m on holiday. I can breathe in the gusty salty air, hear the gulls calling and watch the ever-changing sea and sky knowing that ice cream is only around the corner.

I love the view from ...

Anywhere in the Peak District National Park. Given that I live on the edge of the very flat Fens, the dramatic hills and valleys of the Peaks always take my breath away.

The last book I read was …

“The Wood: The Life and Times of Cockshutt Wood” by John Lewis-Stempel. A heartfelt account of a year the author managed a wood inspired by poetry, folklore, recipes and wildlife.
