A designer forged in the fires of life experience

Heading a bit much? Yeah, I wasn't sure either. But you're here now.

I've been fortunate to gain experiences across not only business industries like telecom and retail, but also in first response, emergency management, volunteer/community service and event management. In regional and metro locations.

I owe this to my natural curiosity, love of learning, sense of adventure and never-say-die attitude.

It's these experiences and diverse passions that make me a great designer, allowing me to see opportunities from new perspectives and put my lateral thinking to the test.

Where I'm headed

I've found that I love helping others, no matter the context. It could be fellow designers, our users, the wider community, or pretty much anyone else.

And I've also found I love tech and the opportunities it presents, when used for good.

Ultimately, I want to align my design roles with this passion for helping others, in order to create amazingly helpful tech products that people love.

My values

01

No bull$hit

Pretty blunt to be putting on my portfolio, but I know it's me. I am honest and open with my team and I want the same in return.

02

Transparency

I'm always more than happy to tell people exactly what's going on and what I need help with. Transparency builds trust.

03

Innovation

Don't tell me it can't be done, or that we've always done it this way. I want to try new things and drive value for users and businesses.

04

Determination

Not shy to take on a challenge, and I don't easily give up. I'm determined to find better solutions and am not deterred by failure.

05

Empathy

A designer's superpower. But also me in a nutshell. Empathy driven by my experiences, for users, my team, and other humans.

06

Loyalty

I can be loyal and stick it out through tough times, as long as their is trust in place. Loyalty and trust are built through empathy and transparency.
