I am a Chartered Architect RIBA and registered with Architects Registration Board. I have worked as an Architect with Fosters Associates (now Sir Norman Foster and Partners), Ahrends Burton and Koralek, GLC Architects Special Works Branch, Michael Aukett and R.J.Lattimore & Associates. For ten years I ran a small private architectural practice with another architect, called Bradley and Stevenson Associates Architects in London. I have taught Architecture at Oxford Brookes School of Architecture (years 1, 3, 5 and 6). I have also taught at Middlesex University and been programme leader for Three Dimensional Design, Product Design and also Design since 1997. I am currently of Director of Programmes for Communication Arts in the Department of Visual Arts, and also Programme Leader for both BA and MA Photography.

As part of my architectural training, I took a series of photographs in France on the work of Gustave Eiffel, which were subsequently published by The Architects' Journal. This led to commissioned and self-inititated photographic projects around the UK published in both The Architects' Journal and Architectural Review, as well as Architectural Design and Building Design (1975-1982). I have also had photographs and an article published in The Guardian, on the oldest school in Ireland (1990).

More recent projects include a photographic study of the land around the Millenium Dome (1996-2000), including images published in the British Journal of Photography (1997); and a study of the site of the Olympic Park in collaboration with BA Photography students (2005-2010), exhibited in public libraries in Croydon and Bromley, as part of the London Independent Photography Group. A further ongoing project is a study of the rural landscape in Ireland and the Kent/Sussex border, which has been selected and exhibited in a range of shows, including the Royal Photographic Society and South Bank Photo; the work is also held in a private collection.
