Born in Lambeth, London, the son of a Welsh millwright, Nash trained with the architect Sir Robert Taylor. He established his own practice in 1777, but his career was initially unsuccessful and short-lived. After inheriting £1000 in 1778 from his uncle Thomas, he invested the money in building his first known independent works, 66-71 Great Russell Street in Bloomsbury (See photos).

But the property failed to let and he was declared bankrupt in 1783 and left London. John Nash is responsible for many buildings around London and I am sure that you must have one favorite. He is responsible for the Buckingham Palace, Royal Mews, St James Park, Regent Street and many others. Nash's career effectively ended with the death of George IV in 1830.
