Archiboo began from my sofa in 2014. I was interested in a new kind of dialogue about architecture that would explore the key drivers of a profession undergoing huge change. I also wanted to bring different disciplines together and offer a platform for people to share their knowledge and expertise.

Archiboo now encompasses the Architect Pitch, the Archiboo Awards and the Developer Collective, which I co-founded with Gus Zogolovitch in 2019.

I am a journalist by training. Before starting Archiboo, I edited Building Design for 7 years and I’ve written for a range of magazines and newspapers.
