ABOUT

I am a multi-disciplinary Designer and recent BA Design graduate from Goldsmiths, University of London. I have experience in object and spatial design, graphic design and food-based design work. 



At the moment my practice involves playing around with food and language. But don’t worry, I don’t talk with my mouth full.
