Career Path

I qualified as an architect in 1999. I worked professionally as architect and interior designer in London and in practices across Hampshire. My research interests include a multi-disciplinary approach to architecture at various scales, through understanding ideas of interior detail to urban concepts. I have run degree and Masters in Architecture courses and led the Masters in Architecture at the University of Portsmouth . I have written undergraduate and masters courses in Architecture and aligned design disciplines. I ran an Urban design studio working with students , which has made mixed use and housing proposals for European sites and competitions in Dublin, Paris, Amsterdam, Vienna, Venice, Rotterdam, London, Dublin and also on regional sites in the UK considering new town and regeneration projects.

As an architect my own completed projects range from the interior
fit-out of bars and restaurants and retail design through to individual house design, school design and public spaces. I have written books across a range of subjects from Representation and Drawing, Urban investigation and analysis to Materials and Interior space. I work with the RIBA to regularly Chair validation of Schools of Architecture in the UK and internationally. I am external examiner at Schools across the UK , currently I am external examiner at Robert Gordon University and Bath University .

I am Chair of the South Coast Design review advising on strategic master planning projects regionally. This review process is an important aspect of raising standards of design of buildings and public space, through active discussion during the planning process.
