I started my career in architecture in 1987 working for a firm of architects in Hitchin, Hertfordshire. With a keen interest in all things self-build, I was fortunate enough to join Potton in 1999. Now, with over 20 years experience in the self-build industry, I’ve gained a wealth of knowledge and understanding in designing homes for self-builders and navigating them through the planning process.

I was shortlisted for ‘Best Self Build Designer’ in the 2017 Build It Awards for the Jenkins self-build home in Dorset – view this project here (LINK TO JENKINS)
Two of my designs have won the Best Potton Home vote in the last three years. In 2017 Josh and Nathalie Cherry’s contemporary home were crowned the winner. Read more on how I designed this project here
