Ed initially studied Interior Architecture at UWIC, graduating in 2005, before going on to study architecture at Sheffield Hallam and Leeds Beckett. His early study of interiors is echoed in an ongoing interest in the reuse and adaptation of existing buildings, structures and spaces.

Since qualifying as an Architect, he has worked at both 'Hodder and Partners' and 'Stephenson Studio' working on large scale schemes, most notably a landmark hotel in Manchester utilizing modern methods of construction.

Currently he is working with ARCD Architects on multiple bespoke residential projects across the northwest and continues to enjoy sketching and painting the built environment.
