After graduating with a Commendation in my Masters of Architecture [RIBA Part II] from the Welsh School of Architecture at Cardiff University, I worked as a freelance designer; involved in the design of sets and exhibitions whilst completing a course in Set Design at Central Saint Martins.

Currently working as an Architectural Designer in London whilst pursuing interests in the arts and cultural sector - in particular exploring the human relationship with space and place in a scenographic way in the creation of narrative environments.
