I studied architecture at Edinburgh College of Art where I specialised in historic building conservation and subsequently worked for a number of architectural practices focusing on the repair and conservation of historic buildings in both Edinburgh and Cumbria. I most recently spent 11 years working for the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings (SPAB) where I was Deputy Director and Head of Casework. I also ran the SPAB's Faith in Maintenance project – a five-year HLF-funded programme to provide training and support for those who maintain historic places of worship. I joined the HLF in June 2015 as Head of Historic Environment and have a particular interest in architecture, building conservation, archaeology and place-making.
