I joined the smok team in early 2017 as a Part II architectural assistant after moving down to London.

Having grown up, studied and worked amidst the ‘affa bonnie’ mountains and lochs of North East Scotland, I have developed a love of traditional, sustainable design that makes the most of its surroundings.  I’ve worked on a number of residential and agricultural projects across Scotland including a traditional family home that achieved Passivhaus standards, set in picturesque Royal Deeside.

It’s a great feeling to have found a seat in the smok office. We are a very friendly, open and social team that share interests both inside and outside of the studio. It’s an extremely creative environment to work in and I’m excited to expand my skills and knowledge on the diverse folio of jobs that smok has going on, where there is always something new to challenge me.
