BIO:

“ I am trained as an Industrial designer but have been a Maker all my life. I have worked in product design, prototyping, shopfitting and exhibition industries for 20 years. At the same time I pursued my passion to work with makers all over Southern Africa working on community job creation projects. I co-founded Maker Station with my brother Manus as a social enterprise to address some of the problems I encountered with small scale manufacturing in the African context. ”
