Creativity has always been my drive, and since my younger years, I have expressed my creativity in every medium from drama and art to music and design. I have always appreciated and admired the hard work and passion of those with big ideas and the joy of the ideas succession in turn is what inspires myself to create. Growing up in Nottingham, I have become very familiar with the design and creative cultures of the area. My experiences outside of design including music and performance lead me to know the creative processes that all creatives take in their chosen art form. Working as a consulting designer and graphic artist over placement helped bridge my understanding of industry requirements and those set by myself. As a product designer, my aim is to question the predictable and challenge the conventional, in form, and function.
