Excited by design with a purpose, my goal is to make impactful and meaningful designs for people and planet alike.

Aeropress project: "Bean".

A mechanical and electronic team project creating an automatic Aeropress coffee machine from concept to fully functioning prototype.

Building "Bean" progress picture.

This project was incredibly challenging to manufacture and build due to the complexity of the parts involved. The embedded software code meant that minimal human intervention was required to operate the machine.

Central Research Laboratory Finalist for the Accelerator Program to develop, manufacture and commercialise my final year project, Mat Zero, with various mentors and industry experts.

Work Experience

I completed a year of the Erasmus study exchange in Milan, Italy. I thoroughly enjoyed my experience in Milan, being immersed in the Italian culture and learning in the design capital of the world and through Politecnico Di Milano. The largest challenge when moving to a new country is often the language. Therefore, I enrolled in an additional language course to improve my Italian. I expanded my horizons by studying Interior Design and Branding modules which gave me new perspectives on design approaches.

During my time in Milan, I completed a three-month summer internship in a concept design studio called Castiglione Morelli Design. Working in a professional design studio, I was exposed to many different aspects of the commercial consultancy world and learned how to design for a key manufacturing client portfolio. A highlight of my time at the studio would include organising, developing and pitching a potential product concept to an established client with the intention to manufacture.
