Skills

This is what I do


  • I design

    Design to me means much more than arranging elements on a page. Above all else, the user /audience is priority. I have a simple and elegant design aesthetic that allows users to easily navigate and find the information they are looking for.

  • I code

    Being able to code as a designer is an invaluable skill. Not only does it allow me to contribute more effectively to a team by doing front end development, but my knowledge of what is possible and what technologies are best suited for the job, are fundamental in making more informed design decisions.

  • Video Production

    I completed my Master of Arts in screen Production where I learnt the art of storytelling through scriptwriting, directing and editing. This has lead me to complete several small web documentaries and corporate videos as well as a number of short films.

About me

Facts about me


I am a multidisciplinary designer with a strong passion for user interface and experience design. I have a Master of Arts specializing in Screen Production from the University of Auckland and an undergraduate degree in Psychology and Film, Television and Media studies. I have spent the last several years working as a freelance graphic and web designer and developer, and currently work as lead UX/UI designer at Grabyo and Fonix Interactive. My background allows me to approach problems from a unique angle and to connect effortlessly with users while doing customer development and user experience testing. I am obsessed with art and culture, driving me to constantly explore new trends and media texts. When I am not working you'll find me rapping along to "Die Antwoord", having a beer or exploring new places.
