Who i am
I am an accomplished, award-winning designer from Vancouver, Canada, currently living in Barcelona, Spain. I have developed an interdisciplinary practice specializing in soft products and innovative design projects. I have exhibited my work at SXSW in Austin, at TEI at the MIT Media Lab, and at SIGGRAPH in LA. I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Industrial Design from Emily Carr University.
Ok, but who am I really?
I am a designer, dreamer and thinker. I am conceptual, curious and goal-oriented by nature. I am a passionate doer, creator, and maker. I believe in design that triggers our senses and stirs our emotions.
I bring imagination and innovation to projects and collaborations. My goal is to bring joy to others through inspiration, beauty and delight. I believe in it’s ok to fail, (I do it quite often). I strive to create what has never existed before. My favourite question is “what if?”
I believe that the impossible happens when we examine situations and problems from a place of inquiry and wonder. I hope to bring bold optimism and playfulness to the world through my design and my actions.
what i do
I am a multidisciplinary designer practicing innovation in every medium, pushing the limits of what is possible.
I CREATE SOFT PRODUCTS
that are intelligently tailored to the user's needs. I achieve success and innovation when I play in the space where fashion, function and technicality intersect.
I CREATE INTERACTIVE EXPERIENCES
that are engaging and magical. Some combine creativity and my artistic vision with cutting edge technology and R&D, while others use traditional materials and provocative questions to engage communities and leave people touched, moved and inspired.
I CREATE ARTIFACTS
that bring joy, excitement and inquiry to people's lives.
From initial design ideation, conceptualization, trend/innovation research and creative direction to full technical drawings, prototyping, testing and implementation, I have the skills and experience to create commercially successful products that blend innovation, function and beauty. I particularly love to create soft product solutions for athletes and bodies in motion. I have a high level of technical expertise, extensive knowledge of materials and technologies, as well as experience with offshore sourcing and production.
