The Profound Question: "Who Am I?"

In Brief

During my career I have had the benefit of working within a multi-national organisation (Halcrow, as part of the Year in Industry Scheme during my gap-year); a large-size practice (Sheppard Robson, as part of my Part 1 Placement); a medium-size practice (Paul Waite Associates, as summer and holiday work); a small-size practice (Horsley Townsend).

Between finishing my first degree and starting Sheppard Robson, I had the opportunity to work for Iab Lab, a laboratory design specialist which gave me onsite, project management experience.

During my BArch Degree I was given the opportunity to work with the first year architecture students as an Assistant Tutor and co-run an events week workshop at MSA. I was awarded a First Class Degree for my Part 1. My portfolio was shortlisted for the MSA Rossant Award and I have also recently been invited to feature my portfolio on the homepage.
