About me

I’m a Designer/Maker with a passion for furniture, though I also make interior accessories, lighting, toys and the occasional sculpture or musical instrument. I’m interested in and influenced by all sorts of materials, their characteristics and the production processes and techniques available to work with them, by machines,  mechanisms and how they work and by natural forms.

I studied at Camberwell College of Arts (BA Silversmithing and Metalwork), before spending several years making bespoke furniture for a small firm in South London. I currently divide my time between designing and making my own products and working as a freelancer for model-making, set building and special effects companies.

Over the years I’ve made hundreds of ‘one-off' pieces of furniture and I am currently producing a few designs in larger numbers. This website is a combination of  an online portfolio/showroom to show my designs and products, an online shop through which they can be purchased and a CV to show potential clients the things I can do for  them through freelance work -  I am available for design and visualisation, welding, metalwork, woodwork, CAD work (mainly using AutoCAD, Draftsight and Sketchup) and 3-axis CNC router operation (using programs such as Toolpath and ArtCAM).

Please feel free to check out my portfolio and feel free to contact me for any more information.
