Who am I?

When I'm not designing at my computer, you can usually find me building my designs.
Whether I'm 3D printing my latest creation or tinkering with various materials, I love designing and making things that solve problems around my home, crafting thoughtful gifts for others, or exploring entrepreneurial ideas.

If I'm not working on a project, I'm probably talking about design.
You might find me at a networking event, my local sketch meetup group, or chatting with friends over a beer.

A bit more about me:
- The beach is my happy place, despite my fear of the ocean.
- I grew up on a farm where my siblings and I built around 20 tree huts in the bush.
- My mum worked at the S.P.C.A. and she would often bring home foster animals for us to care for.
- My favourite food is either a Thai papaya Salad or a cheese boards  – it's a close call between the two!
- I live with a Chocolate Tonkinese cat called Whittaker, who reigns supreme as the king of my house.

Always Learning. Always growing.

My interests

Creativity
I like to stay creative, whether it be through web based design, drawing, craft, gardening or building something. Creating and problem solving is at the forefront of my interests.
Pottery
I developed a love of pottery & ceramics from my Mum. It's remarkable how we can make something so useful, and permanent from mud. Something that could potentially last 1000 years or more.
Environmental Conservation
I try to lead a low impact lifestyle - following the mantra of 'Reduce, Reuse and Recycle'.
I also volunteer with a group helping to regenerate local parks and wetlands with NZ native plants.
Youth Development
& My Community
I developed a passion for youth development whilst organising programs and events at a not-for-profit youth centre.
I also volunteer my time to teach pottery and craft classes to kids and teens who crave an outlet to be creative.
Technology
I aim to keep up to date with emerging technologies as much as possible!
Especially within product design and web design.
Education
There's always room to learn and grow. I've been lucky to have great opportunities to learn through study, travel, and building relationships with others.
