Kiel is a 24 year old industrial designer currently based in Sydney. He is originally from the Central Coast where he discovered his love for board sports. His love for board sports inspired his creativity and introduced him to industrial design. For his year 12 design project he designed his set own set of surf fins. More current projects include a container for use in biosimilar drug manufacture during his honours year, and a camera boom for action sports cameras. Kiel has recently finished up a position at Infa Secure, developing child car restraints. He hopes to design products for extreme sports like surfing, snowboarding, wake boarding or motorcycling.
