I’m a designer, researcher and strategist.

I make sense of fuzzy human stuff to build better interactions, services and systems.

I’m originally from Melbourne, have spent the last four years in Toronto, and am now completing my Masters in Design at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh.

Before making my way to design I completed a double degree in bioethics & genetics, worked as a sexual health & relationships educator in Melbourne, and ran an educational maker space in Toronto.

Ultimately, the goal of my work as a human-centered designer is to shape our digital, physical and invisible environments to promote human flourishing. Here’s a video I made that explains this relationship.

Skills + specialties: empathic listening and in-depth interviewing, participatory methods, concept development, experiential futuring, workshop design + facilitation, designing for services, user insights, project management and leadership, creative direction, public speaking, and visual storytelling.
