I've always loved making things.

From childhood lego to hollow wooden surfboards, via cigarette packet formula one cars and architectural greetings cards, I have long wanted to assemble, disassemble, dissect, understand, create. 

Studies in maths, art and philosophy cultivated an interest in 3D product design. A first class degree in Industrial Design nurtured this spirit through drawing, model making and materials science, but ultimately nudged me away from design for large-scale production. For me the hands have to be involved, not just the head and heart.

Returning to design after a stint in research consultancy, my passion for creating is stronger than ever and has found a home in high-end contemporary furniture making. 

Commissions, bespoke one-off pieces and small batch production are all on the cards, just so long as my head, heart and hands are all happy.

He who works with his hands is a labourer.
He who works with his hands and his head is a craftsman.
He who works with his hands and his head and his heart is an artist.
— Francis of Assisi
