I have also interned at the Ecologist magazine and Environmental Resources Management (ERM) consultancy. I have a BA in Land Economy from the University of Cambridge, the study of the disciplines of law and economics and their relationship with the environment.

Person I most admire:
Ove Arup – his key speech outlining the Arup company principles introduced me to what good corporate culture can look like.
