I founded the studio in 2010 after working at award winning practices as project architect. I studied at the Kent Institute of Art & Design (now University for the Creative Arts) and the Bartlett School of Architecture. Over the years, housing and individual homes have been the main focus of my professional experience. I enjoy designing homes around the needs of people as this is where the individuality of a project resides.

I am a good listener, have a keen eye for detail and enjoy creating light filled spaces. My little known fact is that I once considered being a photographer before becoming an architect. 

If you have a project that you would like to discuss with me, I would be delighted to hear from you.
