I have an unusual mix of skills in that I worked as a Draughtsman and Technologist for ten years before my creative instincts led me to retrain as an Urban Designer. In fact, my technical background means I can progress schemes much further than most Urban Designers. I am also very proud to have achieved a First Class Honours in my Architectural Technology Degree, and a Distinction in my Urban Design Masters.
My interests are in developing robust layouts, focusing on how it will feel to be there, and bringing them to life. I’m particularly interested in balancing the needs of pedestrians, drivers and cyclists, and following my Urban Design qualification I worked within Hampshire County Council’s Transport Planning Team before joining Boyle+Summers as an Urban Designer. These interests no doubt comes from my love of cycling and sightseeing, as well as my obsession with cars.
