About me

Hi, I am an Industrial Designer based in London. My vocation and curiosity have taken me to new places and projects. Experience has thought me to search for new answers and collaborate with other professionals. I have worked in design and it has given me the chance to introduce concepts into everyday tools. I believe social identity and a new way of interaction can be created though objects.
