I am a hard working, creative and dedicated industrial design graduate with a specific passion for riding and designing motorcycles; having ridden motorcycles since I was 9 years old. I have a broad skill set from sketching and rendering to clay modelling and Alias as well as some engineering and ergonomic knowledge.
I am currently seeking work in the motorcycle design sector.

Ariel Motors: Clay Modeller
At Ariel, I worked as the sole clay modeller on a new motorcycle project. This was an interesting experience and I learnt a lot about the work place and studio environment; as well as what is required to take a design through to a low volume production vehicle.

CHD: Clay Modeller
I worked at CHD for five weeks as a contracted clay modeller. During that time I worked on a couple of different clay and hard model projects. I also extended my knowledge of materials through having to work with SLS white and black builds for the first time.

Hobbies and Interests:
I am a huge fan of motorsport; especially motorcycle racing. I enjoy both taking part myself as well as spectating at as many motorsport events as I can (from MotoGP to club racing). Since a young age, I have driven/ridden a wide variety of vehicles: from mini-moto’s to motocross, and karts to jet skis; although I have never raced competitively. I enjoy skiing and other sports such as tennis, and also like to spend my time restoring motorcycles; having worked on a few of my own bikes.
