I’ve worked at the creative end of the bag and accessory sector for 25 years. Early experience with Globe-Trotter, Radley, Nike and Puma led to a freelance career and formation of my bag design consultancy. Alongside this I founded my own brands Utility Archive and Cherchbi. 


I specialise in bags, accessories, leather goods, travel goods, soft goods and sports product with expertise in design, product development, sourcing, project management and creative direction.

Balancing creativity with commercial focus, and aided by an industry-wide contact list, I deliver innovative, relevant and profitable product, on time and to brief. I work with all business sizes, from start-ups to global brands, drawing on a network of creative talent for larger projects.


My east London studio is well equipped with a raw materials library and additional desk space. Situated in Dalston's Lighthouse Studios, a short walk from the Overground network with easy access to central London and national transport links.
