Inter-disiplinary Material and Product Designer

I am an interdisciplinary designer, focusing on sustainability and regenerative design through material development and product design.

From past explorations in the manipulation and study of Urban space to create statements and places for thought aiming to insight the consideration of nature, our effects on the earth and climate change. I have now turned my focus on developing products of change, aiming to produce and develop alternative  commercial products and packaging to allow positive climate action through what we consume.

I have a material first approach to design, using agricultural byproducts, working, developing and understanding the material side by side in order to understand the true potential of a material and then find the right product and situation for that material.



I work with living matter, focusing my current exploration of wheat and mushrooms. I find working and aiming to preserve organic matter vital, as it allow for the practice of biological circular economies.

I have a natural affinity with making, applying these skills in many capacities and technical medium both physical and digital. I have a love for materials and tactile making, allowing me to see the evolution of a product.
