A self-motivated individual who has always had a passion for design. By observing the variety of products around my environment, I came to the early realisation that I wanted a career in the Design Industry. For me, design represents who I am and if I am able to solve the problems which assist making people’s life easier, I have achieved my purpose.
Having finished studying the second year of Product Design at the University of Huddersfield in May 2012, I am equipped with a creative mind, an eye for detail, excellent people skills and the eagerness to learn new skills.
To achieve employment within the design industry and become a successful professional designer within the product/industrial or automotive fields.

INTERESTS & HOBBIES:
I have a strong interest for understanding different cultures, in particular I enjoy learning about Japan. One of my life goals is to travel to this country and experience the unique traditions. This goal would also benefit my design knowledge, as Japan is one of the countries known for it’s breakthroughs in technological developments.
Furthermore I enjoy involving myself with recreational activities, in particular basketball. This is a sport that I not only enjoy watching but actually playing, as it helps me learn co-ordination with others and constantly teaches me the importance of working as a team.
