The Conscious Commuter folding electric bicycle is a commuting solution built for the human scale: designed not only to seamlessly transport you from home to work, but also to that local market, garage sale or café you may unknowingly drive by every day.
Wear what you want: electric boost ensures you don’t sweat in business attire, while a chainless shaft drive and internal gear hub keep your clothes clean.
Plug into other modes of transit: fold the bike and hop onto a bus or train. Put it into the trunk of your car, your boat or personal plane.

LIGHT + LIGHT
A design study inspired by both the concept of 'light': both in terms of mass and it's relation to the outside environment.
Inspired by both the structural properties of an egg, the Pininfarina Nido concept and the Guggenheim Helsinki Light Vessel, this vehicle concept explores how design applications from nature and architecture may be applied to an autonomous vehicle of the future.
Autonomous tech may enable weight savings, as it promises to dramatically reduce/end human error and accidents. Without the need for hefty safety equipment, and the need for passengers to focus on driving, the mobile experience this vehicle proposes is one of levity and a different type of environmental awareness.
PRE-FAB A-FRAME STUDY
A pre-fab, autonomous floating home designed to address the housing needs of communities affected by rising sea levels. Partially constructed, partially grown, the house is capable of producing and regulating its own power and water supply. Recyclable modular materials designed for dis-assembly.
When you no longer have to drive a car, how can Acura redefine how you interact with their vehicles?
A conceptual exploration crafting a branded autonomous passenger experience for Acura in 2040.
The experience draws on three themes steeped in Japanese tradition: Craftsmanship, Ceremony and Contemplation.
Designed to both reference the spirit of the iconic original whilst meeting the needs of 21st century commuters, the RouteMaster 2012aims to optimize the convenience and desirability of public transit. Powered primarily by an on-board battery and ultra-capacitors charged at each hub, the RouteMaster 2012 emits no exhaust.
It integrates with Bikeshare by communicating with transit hubs to properly disperse bike modules, according to demand, throughout the city. While passengers board the bus, the small pneumatic motor powers arms that load and unload bike modules from the hub to the side of the bus. This motor also powers the retractable wheelchair ramp.
Specialized interior zones with unique seating solutions address the varied needs of passengers. Space directly across from the entrances and flat floors facilitate the ingress/ egress of wheelchair assisted passengers. Compact, ergonomically correct lean seats provide a safer location for short-stop and otherwise standing passengers downstairs, while long-distance travelers and tourists can enjoy London from the panoramic second floor.
Modular construction allows for short and longer versions of the bus, while expansive side glazing doubles as digital billboards that promote London culture through public service ads.
Minding The Gap
Video: My thesis project, ‘Minding the Gap’ is a multi-modal transit system designed for Transport for London that integrates an electric bike-share, smart bus hub network and a multi-tasking re-designed RouteMaster bus to increase both the efficiency and desirability of London’s iconic public transit.
