'A product designer who works within the subject area of the natural world exploring new ways of engaging people through original designs.'
A Cornish based designer who is best known for the Tree Listening Project, Alex grew up in the countryside and left to study Industrial Design Innovation at Sheffield Hallam University in 1999 and then the Royal College of Art London in 2005-7.
As someone who is passionate about the natural world and drawn to the countryside and sea he is driven by exploring new ways of engaging people with fascinating hidden features of nature particularly trees.
Alex's two passions in life are trees and sailing, so when not listening to trees you'll find him out on the water sailing
