Sustainable Design Approach

Design covers the broad spectrum of my work that I create, experiment with, research and consult in, ranging from product, packaging to built environmental design. My performative work with nature has provided me with the skills of observation, spatial awareness and embodiment, very much tied to the concept of Biomimicry, an approach to innovation that seeks sustainable solutions found in nature to tackle today's human challenges. My visual arts background has helped me to  solidify and communicate my design contributions visually and physically, allowing for clearer communication beyond the spoken language. My design approach is heavily influenced by the Cradle to Cradle model, living systems thinking, and biological resourced tools and innovations used by our ancestors. My belief is that no-waste products are possible, and that cyclical product lifecycles lead towards infinite possibilities.
