Sustainable and Circular Economy Based Urban Systems
Working in the fields of sustainable urbanism and fixing cities by fixing food systems I am currently active in the SDG and Circular Economy communities. I organise, present at and partake in many events, seminars, congresses, workshops and other activities. Previously I spearheaded the urban solutions group for Drawdown Switzerland whilst I also contributed to various sustainable urbanism activities with Impact Hub Switzerland and Circular Economy Transition Switzerland. At the same time I am developing strategies for affordable communities, energy transition landscapes and developments, integrated waste-energy-water-food and many other regeneration assignments for various clients working as an independent consultant.
In the 18 years since I graduated in Landscape Architecture from MMU, I have enjoyed varied employment that has taken me around the world and also helped me discover and develop close to home. Home has been Manchester, London, the Netherlands, Ethiopia, Switzerland and currently Türkiye. Diverse experiences continue to shape me professionally and personally.
From high level strategic planning, through master plan and large-scale developments to detailed interventions, construction projects, events and project management, I bring commitment, quality and honesty to the table.
