RÉSUMÉ : BACKGROUND INFORMATION

Born into a background of aviation and horticulture, Hull, England in 1960, I studied Architecture at Leicester Polytechnic (DeMontfort University) graduating with the ‘Kiel Award for Design’ and completing a Post Graduate Diploma in Architecture with Commendation.
The continual development in the formulation of my personal Ideology in architecture and design has taken place in parallel whilst participating and collaborating with world renowned international architectural practices such as Eva Jiricna Architects, as a Director and The Richard Rodgers Partnership. Invaluable experience has been gained from this dual process allowing me to form a flexible framework that is used to model ideas for both our built environment and it’s integral interior spaces; it is my embedded belief that architecture and interior spaces must be composed as single entity that when both viewed as whole, creates an ‘Architecture of Unity’
My career and reputation has excelled in the production of high quality unique architecture and design born directly from working with the potential user or a brief. Clarity, honesty and attention to detail is paramount and can be viewed in all my work, with the expression of intended function, environmental strategy, material production, construction and assembly techniques all forming part of what is viewed as a natural composition, that when experienced stimulates both it’s surroundings and it inhabitants.
My explorations in design have been undertaken using various types of projects and especially competitions, a useful vehicle for developing and testing ideas. Awards, accreditation and recognition have not just been received for my personal philosophy and designs, but also for those I have been involved with as a director of EJAL.
