I graduated from Central Saint Martins in London UK as a trained Product Designer. Throughout my studies, I sought to explore and innovate the field of open design. It has long been a topic of fascination for me. The idea of distributing hardware as software disrupts established design conventions leading to more community orientated design systems. In response to this, I created my own design sharing platform “Open Tools”, earning me a place in ICON magazines graduates of the year shortlist 2014.
I joined Opendesk in late 2014. You only need glance at my portfolio to know it was a match made in heaven! I joined the platform for local making as a designer. In 2015, I became Lead Designer playing an important role in the growth of the company, overseeing projects made locally in Europe and the USA. Behind the scenes I worked with a group of fantastic designers, developers and engineers to build various facets of the web platform. Brand building has been one of my key areas of focus; developing the company into a design led organisation constantly presenting high quality content to an engaged audience of customers and wider followers.
Im a passionate open source advocate who works hard to promote the movement in a design context, whilst striving with my peers at Opendesk to build a business model that upholds its values.
