I’m a product and service designer specialising in the intersection of digital and physical. My approach is analytical and creative, my view is that design is strategy.
My experience goes across different areas of design: digital, industrial, research and even new media art and speculative design. I’m most comfortable in the strategic end of design and believe in the importance of iterative, experimental prototyping and real human insight to inspire and inform new ideas.
I started my career at frog design in Germany, working on a variety of projects across Industrial Design, Digital Design and Design Research. I hold a first class honours degree in Product Design from Ravensbourne, London and my speculative design work has been awarded by the Royal Society of Arts, of which I’m now a fellow (FRSA).
Before joining Fjord I’ve worked at cutting-edge art collective rAndom International, creating interactive art for clients like Bloomberg, Wellcome Trust and the V&A London. At Fjord I was involved in EU funded research into the Internet of Things, and worked in the business design team.
When I’m not talking about ‘The World of Intangibles’, I’m probably talking about food.
