First and foremost I consider myself a maker. I am fascinated by the opportunities which the world of digital fabrication can afford designers. Of late, I have been heavily influenced by an open-source ethos, firmly believing that the disruptive technologies which the personal-manufacturing movement develops will result in the democratisation of manufacturing. Working as a freelancer after graduating from RMIT's Industrial Design program, I have pursued a design process which explores the concept of micro-scale personal fabrication. My design methods have enabled me to work and collaborate with local manufacturers, retailers, start-up companies, and artisans.
