About me

I'm an Australian-born Product Design Director based in Austin, Texas. Having spent the last ten years in the creative field, I excel in helping brands and businesses realize their product goals, scale their design operations and lead design teams across org: all while creating strong foundations for future growth.


Over my career, I have had the good fortune of progressing through the different stations of a Product Designer; from a junior designer at a high volume agency to becoming an established Design Director for large scale tech companies. Here are some highlights.

What I do

I'm a creative problem solver and I take great pride in my work. From creating, implementing and modernizing design systems, to working cross-departmentally and training the team, there is no challenge too big for me to tackle.
