I am a designer/maker and work as an Engineer for Barclays Eagle Labs. Here I support businesses and individuals to flesh out their ideas and help them to develop prototypes on our equipment. I am a massive fan of trying new things and learning through failure!
I graduated with a masters in landscape architecture in 2011 and spent 3 years working at Atkins Global in Shanghai, China, before falling in love with 3D printers. I continue to use the skillsets I learnt during this time – graphic design, problem solving, human centred design, CAD and product design – and enjoy experimenting with different machines, materials and techniques.
I previously worked at Fab Lab London where I was resident designer / technician and a freelance designer; running workshops, producing graphics for architecture companies and selling my creations. I am a keen science communicator and regularly take to the stage to introduce the world of making to different audiences. I speak on podcasts and at conferences, but mostly I perform stand-up comedy about 3D printing; which has taken me to various festivals across the UK and in 2018 I took my own show, Making It, to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
