I am the creator of First In Architecture. I wanted to take this opportunity to introduce myself, and tell you a bit about First In Architecture.
After university, I started working at a wonderful architectural practice on the south coast. I slowly developed the website in the evenings after work, writing blog posts and ﬁnding inspiration from my day job. The website grew slowly and people started to read my articles and ﬁnd them useful in their studies. First in Architecture has now grown into much more than just a hints and tips website, with resources not only for students but professionals too. One of the biggest achievements of the site for me is the series of books I have written about construction detailing.
I have worked as a freelancer, providing support for architectural practices for some time now, finding many things to write about that might help other people as I worked on various projects. Recently however, I decided to focus full time on the website so that I can provide much more content, write more books and generally serve you better.
I am passionate about helping people, ﬁnding solutions to problems, guiding people to answers and generally sharing any knowledge I have. This website allows me to do that every day and I love it.

I love getting out into the countryside – with Wally of course.
I am TRYING to learn the ukulele!
I am addicted to McVities digestive chocolate biscuits.
