About me

Creative and insightful, a highly lateral problem solver whose satisfaction and intrigue lies at the intersection of the arts, sciences and technology. I have a fascination for all things form and experience driven. Having developed a broad, practice-based design skill set, my primary focus lies in problem-solving through the pursuit of innovation, simplicity and the enrichment of user experiences. I have a deep passion for understanding materials and all aspects of the design process, from ideation through to manufacture.
