I am an Urban Designer/Masterplanner with qualifications in architecture, town planning and urban design and joined LDA Design in 2014 having previously worked at practices, including Studio REAL and Barton Willmore. My experience to-date includes working on: urban regeneration and extension masterplans; strategic urban design frameworks; urban character appraisals; design codes; and design guides. I am particularly interested in sustainable communities and spent a year and a half working in Germany researching exemplar projects such as Vauban, Freiburg and Hammarby Sjöstad, Stockholm.

Recent work which I have been involved with at LDA Design includes: the preparation of strategic delivery frameworks for four towns in Bedfordshire; 3D modelling and flythroughs for the redevelopment of the New Museums Site in Cambridge; and illustrative masterplans and Design and Access Statements for large-scale urban extensions in Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire.

Outside of work I enjoy cycling and playing the guitar and piano.


My favourite place is …

The Vauban development in Freiburg, Germany because it combines a socially and environmentally sustainable approach with the creation of a vibrant, attractive and varied urban community.

I love the view from …

The window seats in the Jericho Café, Oxford where you can watch the lively street life of Walton Street play out over a tasty flat white and croissant!

I’ve never really understood why …

The quality of life in the UK’s cities is not as high as in those of many of our European neighbours.
