I am a Chartered Architect with over 30 years experience. I trained at the University of Liverpool School of Architecture, 1972-1977, and was elected to the Royal Institute of British Architects in 1980.
I gained wide experience during 15 years in the National Health Service. Within this organisation I undertook a variety of roles with a focus on design, research and the monitoring of standards. I progressed from Senior to Principal Architect.
Since 1995 I have worked in private architectural practice in a range of senior positions and gained further experience across a range of sectors including education, housing, commercial, community projects, ecclesiastical, listed buildings and motor dealerships.
