I graduated with BArch (Hons) in Architecture from the University of Nottingham in July 2011. After a year as Part 1 Architectural Assitant at Hawkes Architecture Ltd., I have now returned to Nottingham to gain further professional experience.
Not to get sentimental, but curiousity and wonder caught me on the Hungerford Bridge extension by LDS at 17 years of age, and took me through my A-Levels at The Judd School to earn my place reading Architecture at the University of Nottingham.

Following my graduation from the Uni of Nottingham, I proudly spent a year as Part 1 Architectural Assistant at HAWKES Architecture Ltd.
In their own words, " HAWKES Architecture design inspirational sustainable buildings that respond sensitively to the individual needs of every client and every site. " Perhaps their most famous project is the Crossway PassivHaus, featured on Grand Designs and subsequently celebrated as one of Kevin McCloud's 10 Grandest Designs.

I'm comfortable and productive in both Windows and OS X environments, and I even manage to keep my desktop tidy most of the time.
I have developed it since, and as a self-taught and self-motivated designer/developer, I have been able to welcome new challenges, technologies and ideas in free-lance and personal projects alike.
I am proud of the knowledge and ability I've gained in this field, and would love to hear about creative opportunities within it, from blog redecorating to professional experience.

On 22nd April 2012 I ran the Virgin London Marathon - 26.4 gruelling miles around the City - to raise money for and awareness of Diabetes UK. Putting my body on the line was a symbolic thanks to the charity, for being instrumental in keeping it healthy since my diagnosis with Type 1 in Sep 2011 - and thankfully, kind donations made it a financial thank-you present too.
I'm the one at the front of the stage, of course. I'll let the music do the talking beyond that.
