"I have always loved theatre - the art of presenting an experience in a specific place, which is why I am passionate about working in heritage."

Buildings are far more than an archaeological record, but about people, context and the intangible aspects of heritage that make a place special. Since attending the Attingham Summer School in 2010 I have focussed the development of my expertise in conservation, representation and regeneration of our built heritage.
