My Story

In the mid 80’s I began my apprenticeship in Cabinet Making at Parkwood Arts in Hampshire.  This was the beginning of what has been a diverse and rewarding partnership with wood and precision engineering, I have loved the balance of beauty and mathematics, the process of overcoming creative challenges is one of the most rewarding elements when building furniture.

Upon completion of my studies in Furniture Production at London Guild Hall Universtiy, I travelled the world, settling for some time in Sydney Australia where I worked in Film Production most notably creating the interior of Lex Luthers oak veneered yacht.

Following this I worked with the acclaimed architect Drew Heath, creating bespoke kitchens, bathrooms, and furniture.

In 2007 I moved to Stockholm, Sweden where I became influenced by the Scandinavian hallmarks of simplicity, minimalism, and functionality.

As a social creature, the collaborative process of design and interpretation is always enjoyable and fluid, my aim is always to be inclusive and flexible.
