I'm a Product Design Engineer with a passion for the outdoors. My design style is heavily influenced by my love of the outdoors, the whole industry has driven me to make my designs more open, accessible and durable than regular designers.
As so often is the case with products designed for the outdoor market, I try to make sure my designs look equally at home on the daily commute as they do halfway up a cliff face coated in mud.
My aim for my designs is to continuously improve life outside of the office, outside of the 9-5 routine. Getting people into the wilderness and enjoying the journey along the way.
If you go through my portfolio on the next page I can show you how I could design for you. By leaning on my strengths, 3D visualisation and CAD technical skills. Designing products that are functional, first and foremost, but are also beautiful and modern designs. Often leaning on the side of overly industrial but never steering away from it looking beautiful.
As you can tell from the title of my degree I specialise in concept generation whilst also having the technical knowledge to make feasibly manufacturable products.

I have taken part in various design challenges and live industry briefs working with companies such as Unilever, Bosch, Canon, Swedish Business seating and Bubblegum gifts. For which in certain cases my product was shortlisted for production and for Canon and Unilever I was selected to give a presentation at their European headquarters in London to present my design to the department heads.
I have produced a series of 16 Art Deco Space Travel Posters, inspired by the solar system and
beyond as well as my love of science fiction series such as Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. They are
currently being sold online, available in both poster form and as postcards.
Having an interest in both design and hiking it is only natural to have begun designing gear for
hiking and camping. I have designed and built various outdoor products in my spare time such
as a 70l backpack with a unique vertical zip design, Which I have used for roughly 500 miles (and counting) in terms of total distance walked (Including brutal testing on the Gabbro up in the Black Cuillins, a known pack killer). This pack I use for prototyping various design ideas. Along with the pack, I have hand built a series of knives, 1 large batoning knife for heavier duty work and the others, a pair for smaller fine work. The second of which incorporated a pan grip into the handle design.
