Until recently, he ran the design research department (FunctionLab) at Farshid Moussavi Architecture, in London, after training for a year at Herzog & de Meuron, in Basel. He graduated from the Architectural Association in 2011 with honours for his project Gold Fictions, which chronicled the financial narratives of the gold market and the contemporary value systems that accompany economic models (tutored by Liam Young and Kate Davies). He also left the AA with the Dennis Sharp Prize for writing for his essay Fly-In, Fly-Out, Fit-In or Fuck Off. He freelances for Building Design, co-edits the AA's weekly independent free sheet Fulcrum (alongside Jack Self and Graham Baldwin) and publishes the blog Architecture for the End of the World. He is also currently a member of the Architectural Association's governing council.
