A childhood spent in Africa and the depths of Wiltshire’s woodlands, as well as extensive travel, has given Simon a deep foundation and connection to culture and nature.
At Bristol University Simon studied Archaeology and Anthropology – shaping and reinforcing an ecological worldview – derived from the study of indigenous tribal cultures. He wrote his dissertation on the Maasai of East Africa.
In 2012 Simon completed a postgraduate conversion and Masters in Landscape Architecture from Greenwich University. This program further deepened Simon’s belief that we can restore balance to the Earth’s biosphere and, that landscape architecture is key to this process.
Simon spent a year working in Ladakh on Arup Associate’s Druk White Lotus School, followed by a year at Farrer Huxley Associates in London. He has studied permaculture, sits on the Advisory Council of the Landscape Institute and is creating an open Coop called Landstory.
His dream is that we may regenerate the Earths living systems leading to an abundant world.
