Matt profileI’m a creative and flexible professional working to develop vibrant communities in the South-West of England, with 14 years experience of working with rural towns in both a local authority and in the community sector.

I work across regeneration and community development and also marketing.

My key skills are presenting information in clear ways, action planning, community engagement practice, project management and report writing.

A consultant since 2002, I’ve also worked
as a Regeneration Officer and Tourism Marketing Officer for South Somerset District Council and as Coordinator of Somerset Towns Forum, the network for town regeneration.

I’m passionate about helping communities to make their town or neighbourhood a better place to live and work in. I do this by supporting community planning and community & business projects, and by promoting places to attract new businesses and visitors.

Before 2000 I was a 3D Designer, but when I moved to the South West I wanted to make more of a difference with my work by helping to build stronger communities here.

Associates I work with provide graphic design, planning and photography services.
