Born and raised in the Eastern Bay of Plenty of New Zealand, I grew up surfing, skating, kite boarding, snow skiing and building stuff in the shed.

My passion for making developed from a humble shed in my parents backyard and ignited a passion for well designed and crafted products.

“For me the perfection lies in clever simplicity and the attention to detail”

Work shed building and material exploration led to studying a Bachelor of Industrial Design with 1st class honors, completed at Massey University’s College of Creative Arts in Auckland, New Zealand.

I received several national and international awards in recognition of my undergraduate work and continued my studies with a Master of Design at Massey University in Wellington. Currently I am working as the Head of Industrial Design at Action Manufacturing in Hamilton, New Zealand.

Design and making is my passion and I’m constantly tinkering with new projects. Some of my current projects include; marine boat design, snow skis, furniture, lighting and more recently fully rebuilding a 1978 Honda CX500 and modifying to a custom cafe racer. Read Less
