I’m a town planner in Arup’s integrated city planning team in London which seeks to develop integrated solutions to complex urban issues.

Recently I’ve been developing strategic plans to help guide the future development of countries and cities. I believe that plans, whatever the scale, will only be realised if they reflect the aspirations of people who live, work, and play in the areas being planned. The challenge is to continue to find new ways to do this given reduced budgets, ever changing technology and more transient societies. 

I’ve worked with a range of national and local government, and private sector clients predominantly in the UK but also in Africa on urban development, planning policy and development management.
