My background is a combination of designing physical spaces and designing for the people who activate them. I believe that as designers we should be fluid—working in-between disciplines, and re-imagining perceptions of spatiality through interaction.

and currently based in NYC

I look forward to working with new and different clients and projects. If you would like to see a portfolio, or chat about potential opportunities, please get in touch.
