A solid understanding of form, the aesthetic value of detailing, and the power of styling, allow creative involvement in all aspects of the product to focus the direction of the brand. Manufacturing knowledge, obtained through a Masters of Engineering Degree, reinforces the creative process by enabling realistic and feasible solutions to the project budget and timescale.

A sense of pride in his work has created the determination to develop a wide range of advanced skills, and a firm appreciation for form coupled with the power of styling has meant that the work has appealed to brands around the world.
