MA work

An inventive person by nature, I have always strived to solve problems. This to me is the very crux of good design. As a somewhat left-field thinker, I will often come at a problem from a different angle and solve it imaginatively. My time at the RCA has allowed me really to flex my wings creatively. This has been emphasised by working with so many people, whose differing views on the role vehicle design plays in society often offer up new challenges.
