What do you think makes Atmos Totnes so interesting? At its simplest level, it’s a project about local people building what they want, where they want it. Its about people and place making.
Tell us a bit more about you. It can be something from your professional life or something about your interests outside of work. I love open water and the sea. I am a very passionate surfer and open water swimmer and enjoy kayak fishing. Last year I swam the Dart 10K. I am married with 2 daughters, Alba and Agnes, and I feel very happy and proud for them to be growing up in such a progressive and beautiful town.
