My practice focuses on design as a process; realising ideas and giving them form. I use design as a form of enquiry to
examine my surroundings, and what it can become. I strive to stimulate change, question complexity and create meaning.
As a researcher, my work investigates a range of subjects from design methods, web browsers, design education and criticism.
