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.
