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

At Betatype we built software tools to extend what could be designed and manufactured using additive manufacturing. We provided 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, been 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 university radio show and a record label. Now I make mixes in homage. Sometimes, I take photos.
