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 developed from a humble shed in my parents backyard and ignited a passion for well designed and crafted products.
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.
2017 bought an exciting change of relocation to the UK, initially working as a freelance designer from London for various clients. I am currently contracting to CHD, a motorcycle design studio based in the Midlands, with the largest client being Triumph Motorcycles.
Currently based in the Midlands, UK.
