I am a strategic design thinker. My key abilities lie in identifying and propose solutions via a human-centred design approach. I utilise a set of service design inspired methodologies to empathise with the user, define an issue and through an iterative process develop user-led solutions. I contribute with an optimistic and futures thinking outlook to the process. One of my main interest is identity and how our current society and culture affect our perception and creation of identity. I believe it is through the cultivation of cultures we can tell powerful narratives.Locked Pro Plan feature
