Seán trained up in Dundee School of Architecture, was awarded a Master in Architecture with distinction, and a first class in his Bachelor Honours degree.
Having lived and worked in Belfast, Dundee, Edinburgh and Melbourne, Seán now resides in London, practising design. Since settling here, he has designed with teams at Grimshaw Architects, MJP Architects and interactive designers Jason Bruges Studio, assuming roles ranging from design team coordinator on Heathrow Airport’s new terminal 2 to production designer for BBC Radio 4 TV commercial set designs.
With a string of successful, built projects, Seán has come to favor business situations where the designer can draw, manage and build the project wherever possible or reasonable.
Seán currently acts as a per-project freelance architectural designer.
