Life is full of surprises, some you don't recognise as a good thing - quite the opposite. The twists and turns of my career have brought me from the corporate world to establishing my own design business. Adding a degree in English and History of Art and Architecture, a masters in Palladian architecture and another masters in urban and building conservation between 1994 and 2005. I think my two sons have survived it.
As an architectural historian, I write conservation reports for planning applications on historic buildings.
As a journalist, I contribute opinion and reviews to national newspapers.
I've written my first novel and recently returned to study. This time it's law and who knows where that will lead.
Through all of this what has become clear is a love of travel, analysis and writing.
Now, back to business... Commissions welcome.
