Originally from the north of England I moved out to the US in 2000 and have called San Francisco home for the last 4 years now. I studied Industrial design in Detroit and eventually moved to SF for work. Over the past few years I have mostly been designing handheld consumer electronics but I enjoy most all types of art and design. I really appreciate products with a sense of humour that also serve their purpose.
From the age of 1 to 6 my family had a small farm in Yorkshire, England. I once brought a garden worm inside to show my mother, my mother quickly turned me right around whilst saying "that’s nice David, now go feed it to the chickens." I guess some time had gone by and when my mother came to check on me I had rolled this poor worm to over a foot in length. My Mother asked me what I was doing to which I replied “I wanted to make sure all the chickens got some.”
“I want to create products with a little twist, a little quirkiness... dog beds that I would want in my living room.”
