  • From a background of manufacturing linked closely to sport, I have a passion for designing physical technologies that challenge the modern human-seated condition. 

    I consciously gravitate towards tackling projects using a ‘build-design’ mindset. I feel quickly iterating using materials better informs the link between virtual and physical outputs. I believe in ‘healthy human-centred design’, with a focus on sustainability, scalability, and an intuitive user experience. Complementing my practice, I love to explore by hiking and sailing; I relish in regularly keeping fit to maximise these pursuits.
