A problem-solving product designer. Inquisitive by nature, I use this to my advantage when developing new projects. This leads to my practice being predominantly research-led. Engaging in conversations with people allows my first-hand observations to be central to my design process. I try to maintain a colloquial tone when tackling sensitive topics and more specifically I try to remove taboos and prompt conversations on difficult subject matters. I am constantly looking for ways to improve society’s understanding of social issues and linking these with helpful strategies to solve problems.
