About me

I am a brand & product designer based in Sydney, Australia. I work on multi-disciplinary projects across industries including automotive, fin-tech, e-commerce, as well as the public sector. I care about creating ambitious designs that make a difference. I advocate for bridging the gap between brand and its touch-points, building meaningful solutions with the end-user in mind.
