I originally trained as a landscape architect in the UK. I am also a member of MARK (Suomen maisema-arkkitehdit), the Finnish organisation for landscape architects.

During my post graduate studies in Landscape Architecture, I developed an interest in writing. I have written many articles for Landscape Architects Network, both as a volunteer writer, and later, as their Content Director.

I have also written a book, Living Roofs for TeNeues publishing all about green roofs and roof gardens.

I now live and work in Nokia, Finland, and undertake landscape and garden design, as well as regularly writing for various publications.
