Hi there!

I am a young designer and engineer using my craft to create and develop innovative products and hardware around the space of assistive technology.

I am driven by wanting to make an impact on the lives of individuals who are less mobile - those that are experiencing disability or the effects of age.

 

My realisation of the challenges faced due to physical disability and mobility inspires me to develop products that assist individuals to retain their independence and aid their integration into society.

 

I see 'nature as the best design mentor'.  I find that my love for the outdoors and nature always work their way into my design processes.

The intricacies and often the simplicity of the natural environment inspires me and sparks creativeness.

 

Please feel free to get in touch!
