Originally from Leeds, I am a Royal Chartered UK Landscape Architect with over 13 years of international experience. I have a grounding in Geography, with a Masters from Oxford University, a strong design and environmental planning background, gained whilst working on a wide range of projects at all scales, in the UK, New Zealand, Ecuador, Canada and France. I’m currently a freelance Landscape Architect based in Toulouse and a visiting lecturer on an MSc in Green Cities and Urban Agriculture.
I worked in London for five years, for three different Landscape and Urban Design Studios. I subsequently went to Ecuador to study organic agriculture and permaculture design and was employed as a Landscape Consultant for an Eco-Village in New Zealand. I worked in the Landscape Design Studios of Atelier Format Paysage, in Paris and as a garden designer in Nantes. In Bristol I worked as an Associate Landscape Architect for SLR Consulting, collaborating with multi-disciplinary design teams.
I taught environmental education in the Solu Khumbu district of Nepal, Landscape Architecture, Urban Design and Permaculture Design in France. I’ve co-presented papers at pan-European conferences, published academic research papers and authored articles in landscape journals in the UK and France.
