Wyatt is a designer and maker from Toronto, Canada. Interests in wellbeing, technology, material processes and craft knowledge inform his work. His professional experience blends a variety of construction and design disciplines, including timber framing, architecture, urban design, lighting design, furniture and wayfinding.

He maintains a practice of small scale design-build and furniture projects, primarily based in Canada. Previously he was the Director of Research at Brook McIlroy, a Toronto based interdisciplinary practice where he co-founded a research group to explore robotic ornamentation of structural components.

In 2020, he received an MArch with Distinction from the Architectural Association. His thesis writing unpacked the initial moments of design conception through a study of embodiment and simulation, and his group's built project, Woodland Cabin, placed in the Dezeen Awards.
