For me, urban design is the thread that ties new and old development together and fundamentally affects whether a scheme works or not. Urban design creates spaces for people, ecology, transport etc. within the build environment, in a variety of differing streetscapes.
In my spare time I enjoy Metafit, Body Pump and Yoga. I am also learning German in preparation for completing Semester 2 of my Masters at the Techniche Universitat Dortmund.
