Born in 1981 and educated in the UK, "My design philosophy is simple, to produce intriguing, interactive products that evoke emotions and memories. I try to design objects that relate to our everyday lives, with clever references and innuendoes. Design allows me to express my thoughts and ethics with each product reflecting my personality. I feel design is a way to reinvent our everyday lives and to make the quality of life better for everyone".
