In recent years, I’ve enjoyed writing online articles about a range of design-related subjects. My personal favourite being around sustainability within product development and the circular economy.
I’m also an avid reader and get a lot of inspiration from reading both fiction and non-fiction. Recently I’ve really enjoyed reading books from the Do Lectures on a range of design-related topics.
When I’m not working, I love being outdoors. Whether that’s taking our Labrador for a walk or heading out cycling, I use this time to give myself time and space to reflect and refocus on my own priorities.
