I am a London-based footwear designer-maker who has an eye for the unusual and extraordinary.

After studying at London College of Fashion, Cordwainers College, I interned with Alexander McQueen and Atalanta Weller, experiences that inspired and heightened my creativity.

This then led to a number of fascinating collaborations with equally innovative designers, including working with Sadie Clayton and Aristides Vanis both of whom have featured at London Fashion Week. 

Having since worked for multiple international brands, I have become a highly adaptable and knowledgeable designer, always seeking new and exciting challenges.

I am very open to collaborations on interesting projects and welcome anyone who may wish to get in touch or enquire about my design work.  To contact me, please email me at
