About me
I have over 14 years’ experience as a CMF designer and trend forecaster with a proven track record in forward-thinking design applications.

Working with companies, I consult and helps navigate future opportunities and create smart, empathetic, and planet-aware design solutions. I help companies big and small, find their colour and asethetics, and help them communicate their brand successfully. My eye for colour, knowledge of hard and soft materials in mass manufacture and critical understanding of the trend prediction process has enabled the creation of high quality and original product design for globally renowned and respected companies.
