About

Currently based in Perth, Western Australia, I am an industrial designer with international experience and perspective. I am a design evangelist, solutions architect and coffee connoisseur.

Described as a little bit left of centre, I take an outside the box approach to creative solutions that deliver on both form and function. With a technical background in Mechanical Engineering, I enjoy uncovering solutions to problems and creating efficiencies. My multifaceted practice includes furniture, objects and public art, creating bespoke pieces that are intended to open up and challenge the conversation between art and science.

I draw inspiration from nature and the environment – there is so much to learn from our flora and fauna. My approach to design has a strong focus on sustainable materials and processes. As a music enthusiast and creator, I am also interested in and inspired by sound. I enjoy creating public art and objects that are both innovative and interactive.
