MA work

Carbon Hero is a product designed to educate and empower an individual or organisation. It allows them to make better, informed decisions that can then have a net positive environmental impact by providing a survey of their primary carbon footprint at previously unseen accuracy, whilst stimulating an inclusive, accountable mindset.

Individually we create waves; collectively we start tsunamis. I have always known that design is a powerful and seductive tool, with immense ability to create value and provide pleasure. My challenge now is to combine and leverage a decade of business experience, engineering know-how, new design skills and an ever-inquistive mind to great effect!

Reinvention rocks.
Evolution happens within lifetimes.
