Renfrew District CouncilWork experience in architects office (1 week)

I am currently working for Aslett Architects in Guernsey. It is a very small practice (currently only David Aslett and myself), which has a high turnover of mainly small domestic jobs. This has allowed me to get a very good experience of the complete design process and I have been given a large degree of responsibility for individual projects.

Before starting here I had graduated with a BSc in architecture (RIBA part I equivalent) from Strathclyde University. There my design projects ranged from small canopies to a complete urban block incoporating housing and a gallery.

I am generally interested by traditional styles and construction methods. I am fascinated by the geometry of classical and gothic architecture and like to try and create order and mathematical precision in my designs, often using geometric forms like cubes, golden rectangles and root 2 rectangles. I also like to aim for the apparent solidity and permanence of many old, especially stone, buildings.

I am very interested in many aspects of computing. I have worked with a wide range of graphics and modelling software. I am proficient in 2D AutoCAD and 3D modelling in Blender and FormZ. I have some experience with various other graphics packages including Photoshop, CorelDRAW and the GIMP. I also have done programming in assembler, various dialects of BASIC, C, C++ and HTML and Javascript. I have recently been using the open-source Linux operating system.

I have many other interests including photography, music and accumulating 'useless' knowledge.
I am an active Christian and served for a year on the committee of the Christian Union in the university, which included responsibility for leading and organising a team. I also helped run a small Scripture Union group in school and was a Scout patrol leader.
