I am a design tutor at SSoA, visiting critic, founder of Northern Workroom and Architect.

I am a practising architect and a director at Northern Workroom. Our background is in the design of bespoke sustainable dwellings, interior design and, property development. Through the rejuvenation of underutilised spaces we are able to maximise the availability of housing in areas of potential development.

I currently also hold a position as Architect at BDP's Sheffield studio where I am based within the education sector. In addition to this role, I also contribute to the sustainability and outreach ambitions of the BDP company.

I studied for my Masters at Sheffield School of Architecture (SSoA) where my thesis project explored themes of regeneration, historic building renovation and activism. The project was based in Stoke-on-Trent and saw the creation of a city-wide plan and listed building renovation.
