About

I am a critical thinker, designer and communicator helping organizations reach the next level.

I combine skills in strategy, language and visuals with systems thinking and technical expertise to make sense of information and bring clarity to complexity.

I am passionate about making small changes that have a big impact on people’s day-to-day lives.

For Fun

Outside of all things related to communication and design, my passion is dance. I take classes at Raino Dance, perform whenever the opportunity arises and volunteer with Dance Victoria. Being part of the dance community in Victoria is an ongoing source of delight, connection and creative inspiration.
