Profile


I’m a creator with an interest in speculative research, experiential design, medical innovation and psychology. I’ve been fascinated with the ubiquitous nature of design since I was a kid and wish to use this interest in designing new objects, services and experiences to positively influence the future world and the people of tomorrow.

I am a passionate learner who enjoys working individually as well as part of a team in order to complete tasks to the best of my ability. I work well under pressure and enjoy using the organisational and leadership skills I possess to manage teams both in a design setting and outside.






Education

                                                   
George Watson’s College, Edinburgh
(2009-2015)

International Baccalaureate Diploma
Achieved:  34/45

At high school I developed a passion for design and achieved an A grade in Design & Technology earning me the School Award for Product Design and Innovation. I was an avid member of the rowing club competing at events across the country and a keen hillwalker, gaining the Gold Duke of Edinburgh award in my final year. My commitments throughout high school taught me a lot about taking responsibility and being a good team leader.




The Glasgow School of Art, Glasgow
(2016-2020)

BDes Hons Product Design
First-Class Honours

After a year of working and travelling I wanted to further my interest in design through completing a course focusing on experiential design and strategic thinking. The course taught me to work beyond traditional disciplinary boundaries and engage with specialist expertise from other domains, such as science, medicine and technology, to create speculative lenses of a better future.

The exploration of social, ethical and environmental issues as subjects for design projects allowed me to apply research methods and analytical skills from the social sciences in order to ensure designs respond to the needs of the people who will use and be affected by them.
