I’ve always had an interest in the built environment and design, and this was further developed after I gained an MA in Housing from Bristol University in 1994, after finishing my initial degree in Glasgow. Since then I have spent my career pursuing this interest and passion both in the private and public sector.
This experience has provided me with a huge depth of knowledge about the development and delivery of various housing models, particularly for universities and colleges, together with an understanding of successful management and funding aspects. I also have similar experience within the healthcare sector.
I’m a firm believer in pushing and challenging conventional approaches and developing new ideas. I am a member of the Chartered Institute of Housing and the National Housing Federation, which broadens my appreciation of housing and the ways in which it can make a difference to the way people live.
Outside of Alumno I have a keen interest in the arts and 20th century design. I also have a passion for music and cinema, and love spending time with my family and two young daughters.
