Hi I’m Michael, I have an interest in cities, their people and their environment.

My interest in the space that people occupy is founded in my education as a Geography undergraduate at the University of Glasgow and then during my Masters in Global Sustainable Cities at the University of Strathclyde.

Since joining Civic Engineers I have had the opportunity to work in some fascinating projects. From town masterplans to local authority and city wide design guides at one end of the scale, and car-free housing developments, schools, and mixed used use developments at the other end.

This interest started when I was a new Geography graduate from the University of Glasgow and the financial crash enabled me to take a career break before I’d even got started. I spent time seeing and experiencing various parts of the world before the homing device kicked in and Glasgow was the city of choice. Being part of the infrastructure team at Civic gives me the opportunity to work in an area that I am passionate about and keep developing my interests

I enjoy going on long walks, through the city or the countryside. I appreciate the pace at which you experience your surroundings when walking that allows me to explore and discover things I might not otherwise have stumbled across, and it provides some great photo-taking opportunities, the image below was one such opportunity. I also enjoy growing plants and without a garden my flat is slowly filling up with houseplants, but there are worse things than being surrounded by  greenery.
