Co-Founder and Key Designer
I love to travel and I also love to be in the sea, noticing the amount of plastic waste being produced inspired me to live a Plastic Free Life wherever possible.
With a passion for sustainable design and a masters degree in Architecture, I utilised my knowledge of materials and machinery to create products that provide sustainable alternatives to your plastic accessories.
I am an adventure & fitness Filmmaker which means that I work all over the world creating video and photo content. From trekking through Iceland in -12 degrees to capturing surfers off the coast of Africa, I’m always trying to push the boundaries of storytelling through unique visuals and editing techniques.
I have been obsessed with photography ever since I picked up my dad’s Canon camera in middle school. I followed this passion & I am now lucky to say I make a living from photography and work across the U.K and abroad. I love telling people’s story through the imagery I make. When I am not editing or shooting you can usually find me obsessively checking Magicseaweed for the surf forecast.
