Born and raised in the Eastern Bay of Plenty of New Zealand, I grew up surfing, skating, kite boarding, snow skiing and building stuff in the shed.
My passion for making started from a humble shed in my parents backyard and ignited a passion for well designed and crafted products.
“For me the perfection lies in clever simplicity and the attention to detail”
Work shed building and material exploration led to studying a Bachelor of Industrial Design with 1st class honors, completed at Massey University’s College of Creative Arts in Auckland, New Zealand.
I received several national and international awards in recognition of my undergraduate work and continued my studies with a Master of Design at Massey University in Wellington.
After completing my studies I took on the role as Head of Industrial Design at Action Manufacturing in Hamilton, New Zealand. During my time there I worked on a huge range of projects including the complete redesign of St John's Frontline Ambulance, the Gen2. This new design has been recognised globally for it's safe and intuitive work environment. I have just recently moved to London to travel and I look forward to what design challenges await.
Currently based in London, UK.
