After working as a project architect for design-led firms in London, Edinburgh and Oxford, I set up as a sole practitioner in 2008 based in central Oxford. I studied at Cambridge University in the 1980s and qualified as an architect 1990. Now approaching thirty years of experience in the construction industry I specialise in bespoke builds, providing personal attention to arrive at the best design solution for my clients. From 2010 to 2013 I studied part-time in Landscape Architecture at Birmingham City University and was awarded the prize for the best design project in my final year. I now collaborate to provide landscaping designs that give the perfect external setting to each building project.
