About Nick

I am an industrial designer and data-driven researcher. I have 3+ years of industry expertise in complex technical problem spaces and my fascination for human behaviour and experience drive my approach to problem-solving in product and service design.

Since graduating with a dual master’s degree M.A/MSc from RCA and Imperial College, I have honed my skills as a multidisciplinary designer who can drive cross-disciplinary collaboration and uncover impactful solutions to complex design challenges.

At my current position at Long Distance LLC, I work directly with the CEO to lead the end-to-end design of a fully functioning smart wrist wearable from ideation to manufacturing. I am collaborating with a diverse team of senior engineers, UX designers, external suppliers, manufacturers and brand agencies to balance constraints and drive the product forward.

At the same time, as a Technical Tutor at Ravensbourne University, I teach UX Design and Industrial Design students in design processes and research methodologies, as well as industry-level CAD software and prototyping methods.
