From the age of 5, I nurtured a dream – to become a successful fashion designer and run my own company. That aspiration ignited my journey, one that began with a Bachelor of Fashion and Product Design at Auckland University of Technology. This educational path instilled in me the knowledge and creative spark that would later shape my career.

As my academic journey concluded, I ventured into the world of freelance design, where I specialized in 3D Product Design, Motion Graphics, and VFX. Travelling between Auckland and Los Angeles, these metropolises became my creative hubs, a place where innovation thrives, and dreams find their footing.

In parallel to my freelance work, I established HYBRIDS LABEL, a luxury streetwear company that reflects my artistic vision and fervor for fashion. It's a canvas where I can bring my dreams to life through design, an endeavor that continuously fuels my passion for creativity.

Since early youth, I had a dream of utilizing innovative design solutions to inspire and empower people, transcending the boundaries of fashion and reaching into the depths of societal impact. I hold firm to the belief that exceptional design unlocks the inherent greatness within individuals and communities, pushing creative boundaries while preserving the distinct essence of humanity.

Beyond my professional life, I'm an avid filmmaker, currently engrossed in the production of a compelling documentary exploring the philosophy and ethics surrounding emerging technologies, particularly artificial intelligence. This venture allows me to meld my creative talents with an insatiable curiosity about the world and its evolving future.

While I was in University, I had the exciting opportunity to be signed as a fashion model by N Model Management. This experience widened my perspective on the fashion industry, fostering a profound appreciation for the interplay of design, aesthetics, and personal expression.

As I gaze toward the horizon, my vision for the next half-decade is crystalline: to persistently craft designs that ignite inspiration, to nurture and expand the creative boundaries of HYBRIDS LABEL, and to form symbiotic collaborations with talented creatives from across the globe. Fueled by wanderlust and an insatiable thirst for adventure, I aim to traverse the world, gathering fresh insights and inspirations that I can infuse into my work and personal growth.

My journey is a testament to the power of perseverance, the relentless pursuit of dreams, and the boundless possibilities that design offers. I invite you to join me on this exhilarating voyage, as we delve into the infinite potential of creativity together.
