I was born and raised in Sydney, Australia. Studied Industrial Design at UNSW, then moved to London to work in the Tom Dixon design studio, before moving to Hong Kong, and recently back to Sydney.

These days, I work in several different ways.

As an independent industrial designer, working on projects for a small range of clients around the world.

As Head of Design at Michael Young limited.

As a maker of one-off furniture, art pieces and installations.

My work in each of these areas has won various global design awards including Red Dot, IF awards, Good Design, and German Design Awards, has been showed in both group exhibitions and solo shows world wide, and been involved in multiple patent registrations.
