I have 30 years of experience in architecture and was head of marketing at Pringle Brandon (now Perkins+Will) for six years until 2001. Since 2005, I have run my own writing and training business, specialising in architecture, engineering and construction. In 2013, I moved from London to Glasgow, but I continue to work with clients in London as well as in Scotland.
I currently volunteer as a mentor with Strathclyde University’s Intergenerational Mentoring Network. In the past, I have volunteered as a campaigns ambassador for Cancer Research UK, as a bereavement counsellor, as a writer for a women’s project in Kolkata, India and as an aromatherapist in a London hospice.
I have an interdisciplinary MA from Birkbeck College, University of London and a certificate in creative writing from City University. Writing is my passion, and I am a founding member of a successful group of fiction writers.
