My focus is on architecture and interior design, both as a visual study in my photography, but also in my studies wherein I research the sociological, economic, and environmental impacts of the built environment. I have a particular interest in architecture education and the current discourse on whether it is fit for purpose.

     - London, United Kingdom
    With a focus on Architecture and the Built Environment, this interdisciplinary course allowed me to expand my interests across multiple fields including graphic design, anthropology, history, and environmental science. A varied education has allowed me to apply multiple disciplines to the built environment, investigating its sociological, economic, and environmental impacts. My dissertation was a focused study on the Everyman Cinema Hampstead and the way it has evolved since opening in 1933, both architecturally and in its relationship with the community and the ethos that the institution holds.
