I work on physical products focusing on the convergence between design, manufacturing, materials and software. I've focused on developing new computational methods, processes and tools that we need to conceive, execute and scale the performances advances in manufacturing unlocks.

Currently I am part of Meta’s Reality Labs. Previously I worked for Alloyed as Chief Digital Officer. Alloyed was formed through the acquisition of my prior company, Betatype.

Alloyed builds computatioal design tools to extend what could be designed and manufactured using additive manufacturing. They provide advanced design and engineering services to some of the worlds largest companies in a range of industries including consumer electronics, medical, automotive and aerospace.

Prior to Betatype I co-founded and ran BREAD, a product design consultancy with Andrew Brand, was part of the founding team behind Orthonika, a Research Associate in the Medical Engineering group at Imperial College London, a Senior Visiting Tutor on the Innovation Design Engineering course at the Royal College of Art and a materials specialist at Ross Lovegrove Studio

Music is my passion. A long time ago, I ran a radio show and a record label. Now I make mixes for fun and on occasion, I take photos.
