2021

As a young designer, I am deeply passionate about creating aesthetically pleasing solutions to the wants and needs of many different people. Finding solutions to problems facing society and making something that will positively impact its users is what drives me as a designer.

Exploring really interesting, organic and almost sculptural-like forms has been a passion area for me and I seem to employ this in most of my designs.

As a designer I feel passionately about sustainability and environmental responsibilities as these issues continuously arise within industrial design. Aspects of the design such as the purpose, material choice, manufacturing process and benefit to humanity are at the forefront of my design process when developing and creating products.

In addition to my industrial design aspirations, I am currently a professional cricketer in the Australian Women’s Cricket team. Balancing the life of a professional athlete and an industrial designer has provided me with so many different experiences and a wide range of personal skills that I can apply to my design process to help solve solutions.
