Mary Bon RIBA: (Architect) Writer - Environmentalist
Last active: 23 hours ago
I am a native English chartered member of the RIBA but for the last three years I have been rsearching/writing (and rewriting/editing and proofreading) via Elance and Odesk/Upwork.on a full time basis serving the construction industry and associated professions. More often than not I have researched and written on environmental issues (such as solar PV, resilient flood defence, SUDS, Passivhaus, prefabrication, landscape, LEED...)
My professional background is coupled with extensive international work experience, including commercial experience outside the profession - for both large and small businesses.
I have lived and worked in either highly urban or extremely remote locations in several climatically different countries, including the UK, Eire, Chile, Italy, France, French Polynesia and the USA. I am married and raising 2 bi-lingual children.
I use my French, Spanish, Italian and English skills to enhance my work, particularly my research capability.
I enjoy supporting environmental causes through my work. In contrast to my hardworking online time, I can be found exploring my immediate surroundings in the wild and rural Aveyron region of France, sketchbook in hand.
