Hello, I’m Tom, originally from Newcastle Upon Tyne, and am part of the Infrastructure team in the Leeds Studio.
I graduated from Leeds University in 2009 and then returned to my native Newcastle to work for Arup in their Civils team. I was lucky enough to get a six-month work transfer to move to Johannesburg in South Africa, and after joining a local firm, I ended up living and working in SA for five years. I’m now back in the UK adjusting to life and quickly losing my tan.
Outside of work I watch a lot of sport, mainly Cricket and Football. Unfortunately, I’m a Newcastle United supporter, which has only brought me years of misery. I also like to travel and I just got back from a trip around Botswana in a 4×4, surviving a baboon raid and getting stuck in an embarrassingly small mud puddle in the process.
