I became a landscape architect in 2009 after studying at the University of Sheffield, and the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences, Alnarp. I gained Royal Chartered (CMLI) status in 2012.
I have worked on projects in a variety of practice types, including Camlin Lonsdale landscape architects, as well as LUC and SLR environmental consultancies. My most recent experience included working on large scale housing developments and settlement extensions, including large scale strategic planning of green infrastructure assets. I am currently on sabbatical from SLR, undertaking an extended study trip.
I am also a visiting tutor at the University of Sheffield on the MA in Landscape Architecture. The module, titled 'Landscape Architecture - Nature, Design and People,'
focusses on the significant re-design of a local park, and includes survey work, case-study visits and presentations.
I have also served on the South West branch of the Landscape Institute (LISW) committee for four years. The committee supports and furthers the work of the Landscape Institute, holding meetings, policy review sessions, networking and professional development events within the South West.
