ABOUT

Innovation not imitation. I strive to create something new and valuable in every project I work on. I believe in user driven innovation and design for society. Sustainable thinking is essential for the future of design, and it features throughout my work. With a background in footwear design I have moved out from the fashion industry and into product design, where new thinking can reach out to a wider audience. I can see that designers can't work in a private vacuum. Collaboration is essential in developing relevant and successful products.
Originally from England I have now made Denmark my home. I have absorbed the Danish design philosophy but retain the international perspective. I have both worked for a large fashion label and created my own luxury brand. Now I am looking forward to exciting collaborations with the new thinkers of the design world.
