Brief History

Born in Dewsbury, West Yorkshire, I spent the first 18 years of my life in a neighbouring town, Mirfield. As I studied GCSE’s at Mirfield Free Grammar school, rugby became a main interest in my life that has followed me through to Adulthood, playing for town and county and later founding and developing Lanna Rugby Club in Chiang Mai.

Whilst at school, I played the drums for the school Jazz band who I travelled to Bruges to play. This is where the idea of becoming an architect was seeded.

I left MFG once my GCSE’s were over and studied my A-Levels at Heckmondwike sixth Form.

Once 6th Form was over I moved to Leeds to study Architecture at Leeds school of Architecture, Landscape and Design.

Who I am

I’m an ambitious, energetic person, who likes to push the boundaries, daring to break down social barriers through design, taking calculated risks to create a better environment for people to live in. I’m a hands on designer, and like to make models and sketch throughout the design process. However, once the designing is complete I enjoy mixing the media, using various styles of graphical representation to show the scheme in its entirety. 

Working in a team or independently I can be trusted to knuckle down and get on with the work at hand. Since 2018, as I built and pushed rugby in the North of Thailand, I had to develop leadership skills and understand how to communicate with people from various backgrounds.


I feel it is important to treat each project as its own. When entering the design process my focus is around the Genius Loci of the space. In combination with this thought process, I am constantly challenging the technologies and materials utilised throughout the scheme to reduce the carbon footprint.
