I have an elephant robot in my living room that comes with me to events to inspire people to get involved in digital technology.
The theme of my work is creating conditions to feel empowered to do something about problems that concern us. So I am developing and sharing the skills, tools and community resources to put ideas into action.
My projects embrace small scale manufacturing and user innovation as a way to have a more sustainable and fulfilling lifestyle. This has been my interest since the age of 13, when I started a micro-business making natural cosmetics that developed into a skincare range and a small shop (see video below).
I love baking, knitting, robotics and combining crafts with electronics. I also enjoy surfing, cycling and judo.
