About Me

For the past eight years I’ve been doing my bit to rid the world of clunky, unfriendly interactions.

From waging a one man war against scrolljacking to advocating for user-centred design in a boardroom full of terrifying executives, my one goal is to make technology seamless, inviting, and beautiful to use.

I also make music as Field Waves, performing around Melbourne as well as releasing online.

My Skills

Whenever I’m asked to describe my skills I always end up drawing this graph:

My favourite space to play is somewhere inbetween research and wireframing – using data and validated learnings to come up with interesting new ideas and creative solutions to problems.

I am commensurate enough in research, concepting, wireframing and testing to comfortably lead these kinds of projects and get great results – when it comes further along the process to UI and Development I will often start to rely more on collaboration with specialists in these fields to continue the high quality of the design.

So, in practice, my key experience lies in:
