I studied Architecture initially at Dundee University for my Environmental Science Architecture Degree before

transferring to Plymouth University to complete my Diploma.

Working in Stubbs Rich Architects in Bath I completed my Professional Practice and Masters.

Whilst at Stubbs Rich I worked on a Directors private house and two Ikea extensions.

I moved to Cornwall in 2001 with the intention of setting up as a Sole Practioner.

I established my first practise named Tsunami Architects – a mere 2 weeks before the Tsunami in Indonesia – I shut this down before it started.

Barrie Briscoe a respected and Environmental Architect from Penzance then contacted me to help him with his busy workload.

We established Arcostudios Ltd together with Petra Elkan as Interior designer and Julie Whitt as one manager along with several technicians and grew the practice

up to the point when Barrie sadly passed away
