Although I have studied Product Design at Nottingham Trent for the past 4 years, I would describe myself as equal parts designer and craftsman. My skills as a designer are founded in a love of working materials, particularly hard woods. During my own time when not studying I have spent long hours confined within my Oxfordshire based workshop wood turning and generally experimenting. Outside of design I take great enjoyment from traveling and participating in sports such as rock climbing and squash. However I always find myself returning to wood working as a source of enjoyment. For examples of my design work, please visit my website.
