Major project:

Range Rover Endeavour: Sustainable Subsea Expedition

Exploration. The pursuit of forging new paths has been a cornerstone of humanity. Man’s desire to see what is over the next horizon has built cultures, empires and societies. 

We haven’t been limited by our imagination either, looking out to the stars, as well as to the four corners of the earth. Climbing every mountain and forging every stream, exploration has occupied the conscience, attention and curiosity of generations of people.  

However, we have made an indelible impact that is slowly becoming permanent. The mark left after our travels in now effecting the ecosystems we aim to understand better. Contamination and demineralisation are forever changing these delicate, intricate systems.

Endeavour aims to explore the last frontier, the oceans. By using an adaptable craft made up of three vessels, Endeavour is able to take people to the sub-sea wonders of the earth, only leaving a ripple in its wake.

The system is a partnership between a company and Jaguar Land Rover for the betterment of green technology. Once signed up to the journey, employees and partners partake in the Endeavour experience in exchange for collaborating with green technology and the progression of more environmental business practises and lifestyle systems.


  • Coming from a family of creatives, my life-long passion for anything motorised manifested into a desire to work as a designer in the automotive and transport industry. In the face of a changing world, my work revolves around tackling researched social and mobility issues, envisaging new concepts and scenarios.
