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.
With a passion for travel I spend most of my working days in London waiting for the next adventure to come along. Working in the capital makes it easy to escape the ongoing issues with our environment. Bear Essentials was created to enable people to reconnect with nature by wearing products made from natural materials as well as to educate them on being more sustainable in their own lifestyles.
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.
