About Me

In 2003, I was 17, studying design in Dublin Institute of Technology, and although I knew nothing about business I made a mindful goal to start my own business at the age of 30. I always craved the freedom of setting my own goals and reaching them. I founded DesignBurst in 2011 which was 5 years ahead of my target. My passion for design and creativity has been the foundation of everything I have achieved to date.

I have a BSC Hons in Product Design, have been practising design professionally for over 10 years. I have designed over 60 products to date. It is really exciting being a designer and dealing with businesses all over the world.

I enjoy sharing my insights in to design, business and being an entrepreneur. I have developed a lot of certified courses for universities and was appointed the role of design mentor for businesses across Ireland through the DCCOI.

What being an Entrepreneur means to me

I love running my own business and exploring new opportunities. I get to choose my business hours, my workload and my projects. There are times it gets tough and requires a completely different mindset but my passion for design has always helped me overcome any obstacles. I wouldn’t change one bit of my journey so far and I am super excited to reach my future goals!

Sharing my insights gives me a great buzz

Teaching others how to be more creative makes me so happy! I think it is because I just really enjoy seeing other people succeed. The best way to approach things is to change your mindset. Instead of saying I shouldn’t or I can’t try I haven’t tried that yet or I want to… you would be amazed at what you can actually do! I started this blog to connect with more people who are ready to embrace a more creative way of living and I am really excited about making my advise and guidance even more accessible. I will be blogging about my journey as an entrepreneur, my tips for being more creative in life and will also be offering freebies and downloads so that you can be more creative at home, in work and maybe some day in your own business. I hope you enjoy reading and connecting with your inner creative.
