ARCHITECTURE · SCOUTS · PHOTOGRAPHY
I am currently studying for my PgDip Architecture: Professional Practice ARB/RIBA Part 3 at Cardiff University and I recently completed my Master of Architecture (MArch) ARB/RIBA Part 2 degree at the University of Kent. I also hold a BA (Hons) Architecture ARB/RIBA Part 1 degree from the University for the Creative Arts. My final Masters degree project and thesis explored collaborative and collective housing models and their relationship to the UK housing crisis. This included a theoretical stance to design, and in particular the ‘infra-ordinary’ as well as habitual aspects of everyday life.
In July 2012, I was chosen to carry the Olympic Torch as a torchbearer for the London 2012 Olympics for my voluntary commitment in the Scouts and I continue as an active volunteer with the Scout movement as the Assistant UK Commissioner for Programme (Young Leaders) which involves me leading the Explorer Scout Young Leaders’ Scheme for the organisation and ensuring that young people continue to play an active role in sectional leadership teams. I am also a Deputy County Commissioner for Kent Scouts, which involves me managing the transformation, growth & development, digital skills and youth shaped areas for 6,000 adult volunteers and over 17,000 young people across Kent.
I have also gained the highest award in Scouting; the Queen’s Scout Award, as well as the prestigious Duke of Edinburgh’s Gold Award. My other interests include camping, hiking and travelling, as well as shooting compositional photography and experimenting with various photographic manipulation techniques.
