With a focus on human-centred solutions, I have been working with creative organisations and individuals for the past 12 years to improve user experiences, empower internal culture and realise business objectives. I’m currently leading experience design for the Centre for Digital Enterprise at RMIT University, working on projects that provide equitable access to future skills.


User experience design, communication design, user research, visual identity, publication design, art direction, strategic design, web development.
