What is the most important question (s) you need to know the answer to at this moment in time to empower you and our communities to reach a future you would be excited to live in?

In the current climate technology had helped us all maintain communication and connection with the social/working world around us. But are we entering a new age where the value of digital connection is surpassing the importance of physical connection?

What exactly do you do and why?

I design sets and costumes, predominately for theatre, but also for film and tv and interactive exhibition, VR and immersive experiences. I do it because it combines everything I love, and I’m passionate about visual communication and the way it affects us all.

What is your unique perspective or superpower?

The ability to understand and create environments that trigger and manipulate an emotional response.
