Connecting design thinking to the everyday life of cities

I curate and write about design. In 2016 I founded Local Heroes to find exciting opportunities for designers working in Scotland. I collaborate with all kinds of organisations and businesses from airports to art hubs.

Contact me to discuss how design can add value to your idea; event; project; or exhibition. 

I have over 15 years experience of creative production in the design and architecture sector in Scotland and abroad. My expertise lies in developing programmes to promote design locally and internationally through exhibitions, events,  symposia and cultural projects.

My doctoral thesis in architecture is the first major review of Scotland's emergent New Urbanism (University of Edinburgh, 2015). In 2015/16 I was invited to take up a post doctoral fellowship at the Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities (IASH), Edinburgh. I was co-editor of The New Metropolitan, a web-magazine about new cultures of urban citizenship 2014/15. The New Met is an outcome of the research project and network New Cultures of Urban Citizenship (University of Edinburgh & IASH).
