Background

As well as being a qualified architect with over ten years of experience in practice, I have taught as a design tutor at a range of schools in the UK at varying levels – all of which have inspired and informed my approach to design pedagogy.

 

In addition to teaching at Reading, I am the Deputy Year Chair for the work-based MArch1 course at the Welsh School of Architecture, a position which I draw from to help me better understand and respond to the changing relationship between education and practice. My continuing experience working on small-scale residential projects helps keep me informed on the changing needs of the industry and the architect’s place within it.
