Role: Service Designer, Workshop Facilitator, Researcher, Maker
Since then, I’ve taken on different roles in startups and a consultancy and seen how different companies find their feet and shape their place in a market. Industries include food delivery, telecommunications and green energy. While I enjoyed the work I was doing, at times, the nature of it didn’t allow me to get under the skin of how people live, what we as a planet need to thrive and how best to get there. I’ve continued to question my work by asking “If I didn’t do this, what would change?”.
By allowing myself the freedom to practise service design within a design school, I’ve been able to expand and challenge my ways of thinking while strengthening my skillset both academically and artistically. With some projects being more confronting than others, each one has shaped me, changed my outlook and allowed me to grow.
Through employing different design techniques in combination with understanding behavioural patterns, I want to shape and create socially-conscious, alternative ways of living.
When not working, you’ll find me seeking energy at a hot yoga class, doing sudokus, tending to my homegrown fruit and vegetables, escaping technology in the Scottish Highlands or exploring something else that keeps me curious.
When working, you'll find me sipping on a Flat White or my latest tea fancy (it's Matcha Genmaicha at the moment).
