I’m a landscape architect originally from a small spa town, Bad Bergzabern, in south western Germany. I studied landscape and open space design in Hanover, Germany and at the same time completed an MA in landscape design at the University of Sheffield in 2004.
I’ve been at LDA Design for over ten years and currently work part-time, balancing work and family life.
I most enjoy working on public realm, detail design and implementation projects, like the Olympic Parklands and Public Realm. I’m currently working on Old Road Campus for the University of Oxford, where I am overseeing our designs being realised on site. My particular interest is perennial planting design in public spaces – you never stop learning: I am planning my next trip to the Sichtungsgarten Hermannshof and to Beth Chatto’s garden.
When I’m not doing the school run, I stay calm with yoga and stay fit with horse riding.
