My subject of expertise is designing for safety and
security; I also lead on our major events projects. I have a keen interest in crowd science and psychology and
like to advise our clients on how they can use these to make a difference
without spending a lot of money.
My biggest achievement, prior to joining MS, was the delivery of spectator safety at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow across all competition venues in my role as General Manager.

“Design is a funny word. Some people think design means how
it looks. But of course, if you dig deeper, it’s really how it works. To design
something really well, you have to get it. You have to really understand what
it’s all about. It takes a passionate commitment to really thoroughly
understand something, chew it up, not just quickly swallow it. Most people
don’t take the time to do that.”
I draw a lot of inspiration from the wise man Steve Jobs.
