What are your three favourite designed products?
What interests you?
Music has been a large part of my life; I started on violin in primary school and then moved up to viola and guitar later in life. At the moment I lead the viola section in my local orchestra and also do a bit of conducting.
What product could you not live without?
Like everyone, my smart phone is an integral part of my life for communication, entertainment, and education. I really like the apps that give you access to your smart phone sensors, giving you a powerful laboratory that fits in your pocket.
I like to break things down to their simplest description, and then build up the complexity as it’s required.
There’s a great Einstein quote that sums this up:
“Make everything as simple as possible, but not simpler.”
