I am a designer engaged in social and cultural matters. In my work, I develop tools, services and formats for society to adopt, use and in some cases modify to improve their wellbeing. I often function in the space between Sociology, speculative design and science; feeling compelled to dive into the impact of certain advancements that are already in play to help us have a conscious hand in how we shape our future. Public engagement is key to my work as I enjoy finding creative ways of disseminating knowledge and probing questions in a way that is personally relevant to individuals and their daily lives. I trained as a designer at “Design Academy Eindhoven” in Holland. British by Nationality I have spent ten years living abroad in Vienna (Austria), Amsterdam and Eindhoven (Netherlands). Since graduating in 2018 I have been working for 'The Center for Genomic Gastronomy' and 'The Office of Life And Art'. Both are art and design-led think tanks busy with the future of human food systems, technology and culture.
