Tom originally trained as a landscape architect, but has spent most of his life in television and corporate communications, and he still occasionally makes films for corporate clients, colleagues and community groups. His MA dissertation in 2010 was a documentary exploring productive / multi-functional green infrastructure in relation to sustainability and climate change pressures. This remains his chief area of interest at Leeds Beckett University, where he teaches landscape architecture and urban design. Tom also sits on the committees of a number of local organisations concerned with the enhancement of urban green space, including Feed Leeds and the Leeds Parks and Green Spaces Forum. His environmental work can be accessed at urbal.tv.
Tom is UBoC’s Business Development Coordinator, and also the main contact for projects and general enquiries.
