I have worked as a designer within the furniture, building and education sectors for over three decades, implementing creative solutions for the repurposing of materials and management of waste streams. Upcycling is a way of life for me; I have always seen value in giving a 'second life' to the old, discarded and unwanted. Starting Upshop Industries in 2015 was a natural next step, a means of working with industry partners and communities on effective and long-term strategies that will keep our valuable materials and resources within the circular economy for the benefit of us all.
