A bit more about me :)

I'm an award winning explorative maker and designer with proven track record working to deliver impactful products in SME's / Start-ups.  I'm fascinated with how people relate to physical products and obsessive about making and learning new skills! I've spent my whole life making and solving problems: starting with treehouses and go karts and I love being able to apply these skills to new problems. I am best at rapid iteration of solutions to test ideas and solve issues. If you need these skills I'd love to discuss how I can help!
