About Tobias

I am a Designer, a Runner, and avid Climber.

My passion in design rest quite gracefully on the user experience, the influence of design and how people interact with it. The possibilities in function, form and materiality are also key drivers in the strive for originality, creativity and innovation. I enjoy a personal commitment to education in addition to my design practice, building on a foundation of design theory and environmental psychology, or whatever else takes my fancy.

Now the juicy stuff... I also love the outdoors, and am often out running at ridiculous times in the lovely Melbourne winter, clinging to walls in my nearest bouldering centre, top-roping, and watching cooking videos on Youtube whilst I'm also cooking.
