After gaining a PhD in Human Geography from Durham University in 1990 and lecturing in Human Geography in New Zealand and at De Montfort University for a number of years, I studied for an MA in Town and Country Planning at UWE, graduating in 2006. I worked for Plymouth City Council as a spatial planner from 2004 to 2017 and have been a chartered member of the RTPI since 2009. In 2017 I  joined the University of Plymouth as a Lecturer in Geography (spatial planning) where I lecture on the MSc Planning course.
