About me
HELLO! I am an industrial design student from Northumbria University graduating this summer. My design approach orientates around creating positive social benefits and influencing behavioural change through well designed meaningful products and experiences. I believe that design can bring innovation in businesses, influence social change and alter the way we live.

Work history
    Newcastle upon Tyne, United KingdomFreelance
    Our mission, which we are very passionate about, is to change the landscape of how design is perceived. We aim to create a community of people sharing their thoughts on the creative industry (and its relationship with other industries), as well as self development furthered by empassioned individuals. Ultimately we want to create an openness to try any opportunity avaliable with the aim of increasing an individuals network, skill, and confidence. With a focus on non-monetary transactions we hope to create a dialogue which empowers both creative and customer.
    Junior Product Designer
    Wetherby, United KingdomFull Time
    Developing a range of acoustic products that optimise sound levels within commercial and residential spaces. Areas such as open offices and restaurants where noise pollution is often distracting and results in users struggling to hear each others conversations, over the background noise reverberating around the room. Sound is often a sense that is less regarded within the design world and as a company we strive to design products that create a well rounded meaningful and memorable experience on all the senses.
