Person Type


I am a design researcher and strategist.

After graduating from MA Industrial Design, I co-founded Bidean, a more than profit enterprise in design and mental health and subsequently spent 18 months co-setting up a design studio at HMP Thameside to co-deliver Makeright, a design thinking for prison industries course.

I am currently employed as a Co-Stage 2 Leader on the BA (Hons) Product Design programme (where I was previously the Contextual Studies Leader for an academic year) and Academic Support tutor at Central Saint Martins. I am also a Research Associate with the Design Against Crime Research Centre at Central Saint Martins.
