I’m an urban designer and strategist with a passion for placemaking infrastructure.
I lead the Pocket Places programme at Sustrans Scotland working with communities to co-design pocket parks and improve overlooked areas while making it easier for people to walk, wheel and cycle.
As the former director of the Copenhagen Climate Resilient Neighbourhood project - www.klimakvarter.dk - I also have a track record of delivering major urban infrastructure projects and a unique knowledge of Copenhagen’s award winning approach to climate adaption.
With R|S|L|ENT I do lectures, workshops and consulting on climate resilience and urban regeneration.

Infrastructure planning and design
When we started the Klimakvarter regeneration project this square was a small, overlooked non-place in the north of Copenhagen that no one used and no one cared about.
Through three years of intensive placemaking and community engagement we managed to transform the square into the model image of Copenhagen’s approach to climate adaptation. An approach where added value and placemaking infrastructure is at the core.
I led the co-design process writing the design brief and setting up a governance structure for the five neighbouring housing associations to take on future maintenance and run activities on the square.
