About me

I combine the engineer's rigour and the designer's creativity, together with a burgeoning curiosity and great attention to detail. From concept to delivery, I have the tenacity required to embrace ambiguity and bring a project to life. I am passionate about using innovation and design to create digital and physical experiences that spark emotions in people and inspire us to look at our world differently.
