About me

Starting my career in Sydney, I relocated to Amsterdam via a four year layover in Berlin. I have 10 years of experience delivering brand development and rollout, in-person retail and POS, digital advertising and campaigns, design and art direction. I worked previously as a global art director for Etsy in Berlin, working primarily on its international markets with a focus on campaign and multi-country projects. I've also ran an independent culture magazine in Sydney for a couple of years, co-launched one of Sydney’s first collective creative spaces, successfully ran an art and design collective twice as part of Sydney Design Week, and worked for multiple design and creative agencies in Australia, Europe, and North America. As well as design and art direction, I've had the pleasure of lecturing at Billy Blue College of Design, University of Technology Sydney, Enmore College of Design, the College Of Fine Arts UNSW, Elle Decoration Live Amsterdam, and Creative Mornings in Berlin. I've just moved to Amsterdam and looking to collaborate.
