Design is a tool to help the tribe - P.Starck


A creative mind, a sharp skillset, a BSc in Product Design (Hons), two passports, a unique approach, a passion for astrophysics, an active learner, a craving for the next level, a curious musician, a well travelled past, a desire for a better future. Building on my passionate design approach I am a constant thinker and pursuer of design philosophy, always looking for a way to get better, smarter or more efficient.
I strive to maintain an outstanding level of professionalism through effective communication, presentation and personality built through a long-term involvement in an award winning, family run hospitality business. I am also a keen team roles enthusiast, which means I am highly enthusiastic towards team and group tasks, with great interest in maximizing efficiency and compatibility.
