I am a Chartered Landscape Architect and have worked in private practice for over 10 years. Prior to joining LDA Design in November 2014, I worked at Gillespies in Glasgow, where I worked on the redesign of the Grassmarket and St Andrew Square in Edinburgh, both of which fall within the confines of the UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Since joining LDA Design I have been heading up the team responsible for the development of a public realm strategy for the Sighthill Transformational Regeneration Area in Glasgow and its ultimate delivery onsite. Proposals include the introduction of new parkland, amenity and public realm spaces including the ‘Civic Spine’, a dynamic greenway connecting the heart of the development to Glasgow City Centre.
In my spare time I like to cook for people at home, and can often be found pounding dough or devising new culinary delights in the kitchen.
The Inishowen Peninsula, an area in north Donegal, steeped in history where the mountains sweep down to the sea, creating dynamic, rugged landscapes.
My friend’s rooftop terrace in Crasciana, an ancient hilltop village in Tuscany, my favourite holiday destination and a true antidote to city life.
