About Me

I am currently working in New York City as an Industrial Design Specialist at Grimshaw Architects. Before that, I graduated from The University of Edinburgh with a first-class honours degree in Product Design. I have skills and experience in various disciplines of design, including but not limited to Industrial Design, Graphic Design, Game Design, Web Design, UI/UX, Photography, Multimedia, and more.

As a designer I love to make things. I have an aptitude for learning new skills and trying new things. I pride myself on having a broad set of interests in and beyond my field such as in history, geography and the sciences, as well as being creative, a lateral thinker and having excellent attention to detail. Moreover, I work well in teams and love a challenge.
