I believe in creating content-driven experiences. By creating worlds and telling stories, I want my audience to be able to step into my designs; to interact with them, and to connect their digital experiences with the physical world.

I’m a nerd at heart, with a love for all things technology, futurism and space exploration. I love Marvel, conflicted about Doctor Who and admire Star Trek.

I’m passionate about equality for all and I participate actively in LGBTQIA+ issues.

I also take every chance I can get to get out and experience the world, to be a tourist in my own city or to visit far off places, achieving 24 countries so far.

  • I lead the design and execution of the new experience for Westpac accounts and cards, implementing core features such as Apple Pay which achieved 10k+ sign-ups on launch day and reduced customer complaints significantly ongoing.

  • I collaborated with a multi-disciplinary group from the initial concept of what a new banking app for Westpac would be through to its development and release to 3+ million Australians. In the process, I documented and built a 50+ page XD Guidelines pack in the process.

  • I worked hard from the beginning to ensure the goal of designing and building Australia‚Äôs most accessible banking app. The rules we created had a key focus on colour contrast, dynamic text sizing and high-quality voice over. After months of a rolling release, there have been 0 accessibility based complaints.
