Personal profile


I joined Northumbria in 2012 after working for a number of internationally recognised design consultancies. I completed a BA in furniture design and an MFA in industrial design (at Konstfack, Stockholm).

I spent several years living and working in Scandinavia, most recently as Senior Designer at a consultancy in Copenhagen. I have undertaken projects for clients including Novo Nordisk, Puma, Carhartt, Luceplan, DSB (Danish Railways), Hertz, IKEA, Malmo city and the Danish government. My work covered a range of design activities including research and strategy; service; and product design.

My work has been exhibited internationally - including at the Danish Design Center and the Cooper-Hewitt, New York -and has been recognised with Red Dot and iF design awards.

I completed a practice-based PhD in 2020 – The Design of Poetic Things. My research interests focus on the application of contemporary design philosophies – particularly thing theory and everyday aesthetics – in design practice.
