About me

From birth, every moment of our existence is shaped in some way by design. Everything we interact with was, at one time, no more than an idea in someone's head. I find the process of creation, from idea to reality fascinating. 

As a designer, I am focused on utilising technologies and innovative thinking to create solutions that can bring about meaningful change. I am motivated by creating products and experiences that are better for both people and the planet.
