After graduating in 2007 and co-founding Blender Design, the last 10+ years I have worked with some amazing people to conceptualise, prototype, problem-solve, and realise product ideas. From this I have gained a huge amount of knowledge & experience in the product development process, materials & engineering, and design for manufacture. From partnering with enthusiastic clients, to getting stuck in with awesome coworkers, I love bringing together new ideas and awesome people to make things happen.

I have previously spent 2 years living in Shanghai, China. Focusing on both NZ clients who are seeking prototyping and manufacturing capabilities as well as being close to our China based clients.

I have traveled around many areas of China introducing clients to manufacturers and exploring new opportunities, as well as on-site factory based problem solving and design for manufacture (DFM) feedback.

Now back on homeground in NZ, in my spare time you won’t find me far from product design. Creating new personal electric vehicles (if you come to visit us, check out the Skimmer) or piecing together custom radio control toys. I’ve always had a passion for design and build, with a very practical and functional way of thinking and approach to design. That being said, now and then the brain needs a rest, so I’ll also be found enjoying the outdoors with family and friends, or re-fueling at the local watering hole.
