I’m a newly graduated, passionate, product designer. I employ empathy and a research-led approach to generating creative solutions in the hope to empower, assist and invigorate people's lives. Coming from an art based background I naturally emphasise the importance of diverse approaches to problems and clear visual communication.

Graduation and New Designer2017!
It has been a fantastic end to my university education. A two week graduate show was held at the The University of Huddersfield during June, marking a celebration of everyone's hard work during their final year. During July I was honoured to be one of the selected designers choose to exhibit their final year projects at New Designers 2017 in London.
ND '17 was a great success, with graduate work been exhibited from all over the country, and feature talks from industry professionals. We had an incredible stand on which I met some great people and received valuable feedback and interest in regard to my project.
Placement at Ellis Furniture
As of earlier this year I started a year long placement at the family run furniture company Ellis Furniture, with the title of 'Junior Designer'. This year takes the place of my third year of my University course, leaving my final year of university to be completed the following year.
This full time employment has resulted in this website not been updated as often as I would like. But I feel this year will be crucial in my development, so a worthy sacrifice in the long term. I hope visitors will understand and continue to express interest in my work. Thank you.
