I am an international researcher, designer and
artist (respectively). Recently graduated with a
BDes in Industrial Design at Emily Carr
University of Art + Design in Vancouver, Canada.
My work is varied and transdisciplinary, with
strong themes of critical ecology, identity, and
experimental futures.

I tend to flourish at the intersection of nature,
design, science and culture.
