Final year Industrial Design student at Massey University, Wellington, New Zealand.
Major project in collaboration with tobe [NZ footwear brand]:
An investigation into minimalist footwear construction methods and materials. In search of a process that would allow shoes to manufactured locally; without the need of a factory, yet still be relevant to a youth target market.

Upon completing my degree I will be actively seeking design experience. For this I am willing and able to travel abroad.
If you are interested in my work or would like any other information, please do not hesitate to contact me.
