I have more than 15 years’ experience designing projects at a range of scales from public squares to city masterplans and across sectors, including parks, streets, schools, and housing. I most enjoy seeing projects through to construction and watching them become a part of people’s daily life.
Joining LDA Design in 2019 – after working in the United States for five years – I am leading a complex phased public realm project in Reading, which will help to better connect the railway station with the town centre.
I am increasingly motivated by the belief that landscape architecture has a unique and important role to play in helping to solve many of the problems our world faces – such as the climate crisis and loss of biodiversity – and designing the transition of our society to a more sustainable and resilient form.
Outside of work I love exploring whether by foot, bike, kayak or sailing boat.
Is inspired by the land art of Richard Long. It is 20 miles long and sets out to walk as perfect a circle as possible around central London.
'Rum Punch' by Elmore Leonard. Snappy dialogue and hard to put down.
My bright red slippers. I wear them around the office and they help to create a more relaxed atmosphere, and are very comfortable.
