I grew up in in Torquay in the South West of England. I studied mathematics at Corpus Christi College, Cambridge and architecture at Bristol University. I lived in London, England, for many years where I was a principle in the architectural practice of Pinchin Kellow. Following that I practised in Plymouth, England and founded the local Civic Society. Since 2009 I have been Communications Secretary to the Traditional Architecture Group, a linked society of the Royal Institute of British Architects. I now live and work in Toulouse, in the South of France, where I continue to design, and write and give talks on architectural theory.
