Thinking beyond conventional design patterns
I have always been driven towards problem-solving, design is the medium in which I have been most fluent.
Problem-solving utilising a holistic thinking and methodical approach to addressing the central design problem. I aim to unpack complex problems systematically with design thinking, a great deal of empathy and punctiliousness. I strive to collaborate effortlessly with clients and fellow team members. I'm a strong believer in teamwork and collaboration.
My work goes beyond conventional design patterns and visual styles. I specialise in consumer products that distill complex data into simple and beautiful visualisations. With my extensive experience working in tandem with engineers, executives, and marketing teams, I know how to ensure user needs whilst aligned with business goals.

How football made me a better designer
Playing Australian rules Football for many years taught me how to make intentional decisions in complicated situations. I had to work as a team, regularly iterate through practice and understand the psychology of fellow players under intense, competitive conditions. These valuable lessons I learned on the field have carried over to the digital design work I do today.
