About me

I recently worked at HOWE as a design engineer and in the past few years I have worked for several renowned design companies such as Paul Cocksedge Studio (freelance designer) Marcel Wanders (interior design intern) Rokit (3D printer -product designer). I graduated with a Masters degree in product design from Nottingham Trent University in November 2013. I have also enjoyed experiences as a design graduate in Korea, majoring in furniture design. Throughout these experiences, I have demonstrated my creativity and my passion for design, for problem solving, for working effectively within teams and for advanced communication skills. I have constantly produced work of a high design and quality demonstrating new perspectives in many areas. My previous study of fine art from art high school have contributed to my passion for design. I am very confident in my ability to produce high quality work and to develop my skills further.
