I first studied Building at Oxford Brookes University before transferring to Architecture in 1994. Following the BA in Architecture I undertook a double diploma in both Architecture and Low Energy Building Design.
I am therefore both a qualified Architect and Low Energy Building designer.
I completed my architectural studies at the University of North London in 2003 where I passed the part three practical training module and subsequently obtained my Royal Institute of British Architects accreditation.
At the time I was working at the world renowned Nicholas Grimshaw and Partners where I undertook my practical architectural training.
Whilst in London I also worked for the world renowned multidisciplinary firm Ove Arup and Partners where I developed my specialisation in Facade design.
The skills, (in particular the utilisation of powerful 3d software) were developed and honed at Grimshaw and Arups before setting up mu own practice in 2003.
