After working as a bicycle mechanic and carpenter, at the age of 30 I went to college to study to become an architect. A bit more than a decade later I have my own tiny practice, working from home in Kings Heath, Birmingham, UK. After working as an employee on large projects it is very different running my own shop. The work is harder and the money is less, but the work is all my own and the only person I need to please is the client. So today, marketing! I am off to put my card up in the newsagent’s window. Perhaps you will see it there soon.
