I am excited to refocus my career within the field of landscape architecture, having worked for 10 years in the advertising and communications industry. September 2017 will see the commencement of a masters at University of Greenwich. During the conversion route this year (2016 – 2017) I have been specifically focused on urban design, ecological practises, and ecosystem planning with an emphasis on water.

Alongside studying full time during term time, I am currently seeking medium-term work placements and short-term opportunities. I have always learnt quickly, adapted easily, and continue to challenge where necessary whilst keeping a firm grip on objectives and time scales. Friendly, confident and enthusiastic, I am always keen to expand my knowledge, and equally capable of working in a team or independently.
