I'm an industrial designer, interested in the human aspects of design and creating products that can help improve users’ lives.
After growing up in a small town in Shropshire, I moved to west London to study industrial design at Brunel, and enjoy the chance to explore the city. Throughout my life I've always had a bit of an obsession with taking things apart and attempting to make things, and after considering a number of different directions, including a year on placement working in engineering, I decided design was the right path for me. As a designer, I've always been very interested in the human aspects of the subject, how we interact and respond to the things around us, and the improvements that can be gained through the small details of design. This has led me to take an interest in human factors, and the way we interact with things both physically and digitally, skills that I built upon whilst working as part of the industrial design team at DePuy Synthes. Designing orthopaedic surgical instruments, I was able to gain an understanding of the unique environment and challenges of surgery, and develop concepts to make the surgeon’s job easier. When I’m not thinking about design, I’m a keen cyclist on both the road and track, and have a strong interest in technology, especially in disassembling, repairing and modifying whatever comes to hand. As well as this I spend time enjoying both digital and film photography, and enjoying cooking, which I found an interest in after spending my summers working as a chef. You can find my CV here.
