[Proxy for an About]
Start with where you are from, write eerily in the third person as if someone else was introducing you. [Dom Oliver] was born in [Swindon], mention how this gives you a unique outlook on life because of [its proximity to the M4, the railway museum, and the railway museum]. Include something to mask your incredibly banal life, a surprising fact perhaps, that the area you grew up in has [the highest density of crop circles in Europe]. Now, an insincere quip that lets the reader know you are in fact, human.
Explain how the intricacies of your practice were seeded in undergraduate degree at [University of Bath]. Express your employability by recalling your professional experience, working for [two] years at [Foster + Partners].
Flesh out your persona with your research interests, you must have interests. Pose some questions and throw in some neologisms with an increasingly urgent tone. Architecture in the age of something, anything. Towards a prediction, or maybe just a novelty? A [quasi-event] in a certain place, a pressing issue that we surely must address in the [prefix]-ocene.
