"I draw inspiration from nature and organic forms, its infinite creations and textures. I am always looking for new materials and inspirational challenges. Exploring new technologies in craft and manufacturing is also essential to the process, along with my desire to challenge conventions and perceptions. The resulting pieces can be admired for their beauty and also for their intended purpose.

My designs so far have received several awards from the industry, most notably, the Young Designer Silversmith Award of the year, 2013. The Goldsmiths' Company chose my design of a sake vessel with stacking cups. The journey to become a professional silversmith has been inspirational."
