• I have 12 years experience working in multi-sector product design consultancies and an award winning, highly ambitious internal design department. I combine great creativity with first-hand mass-manufacturing and management experience. • A Red Dot and European Product Design award winner, I work to a fantastic mix of consultancy-creativity and can-do attitude combined and an in-depth awareness of design for manufacture and the levels of communication and prototyping to drive products from concept to realisation. • I've spoken to Design students as part of Coventry University's Visiting Lecturer programme and conducted a portfolio review to year 3 students. • Do get in touch to discuss how I can support your NPD programme.
