I am passionate about design and its ability to make a positive difference in the world. I am interested in how we can use design to evolve everyday things (services, clothing, artefacts & media) to truly work for us, as individuals, communities and as a functioning society.
I am specifically interested in what we think, how we process our experiences and how this trickles down to the worlds we create. I believe that while we may live in a world of a million little utopias that it is important to find ways to collaborate in unity and I believe that design can truly make a difference in the messes of yesteryear and the realities we experience everyday.
I have working experience as a Fashion Designer, Graphic Designer and as an Educator and have recently returned to education and have undertaken a Bachelor of Design at the Glasgow Art School in Product Design in the Design Innovation School and studied Industrial Design in the University of the Arts in Philadelphia.
