The following images illustrate a sample of the diverse entrepreneurial work undertaken to date. Demonstrating a comprehensive team led, commercial design and innovation background, complimented by an ability to undertake and lead teams in academic and commercial research. Adopting a research based lead in design allows for the validation of conceptual outputs and the direction of effort to result in new knowledge grown from a robust foundation. Most recently working as an innovation specialist mentoring local and national business teams, developing innovation and entrepreneurism within their business, where possible winning the support of European Regional Development Funding to assist with the delivery.
