I am a recent graduate of Architecture at the University of Nottingham with a keen interest in Conservation Architecture. I enjoy an eclectic mix of the historical and contemporary, especially a successful marriage of the two. The theory and philosophy of Architecture along with architectural history, are further areas of particular interest. I find addressing and responding to the historic fabric of buildings a particularly rewarding experience. An informed interpretation can find merit and enhance the historical layering of the building, whilst also allowing for discrete and holistic environmental strategies to be employed.
Art and music continue to influence my work and life. I maintain strong interests in drawing and photography, and enjoy throwing pottery and painting. I am a chorister in a church choir, continuing my choral singing which began at school. Walking has been a continued interest and supports a more general interest in the natural environment. Other sporting interests include badminton, croquet, cycling and tennis. I enjoy wine tasting, local history and topography amongst other pursuits such as exploring historic sites: touring Great Britain and further abroad with a particular interest in ecclesiastical heritage. I enjoy reading and much to to with books and libraries in general. This has fostered an enjoyment of creative writing which has translated across to my architectural writing.
