I’m a strategic designer and facilitator. I’m originally from Melbourne, have spent the last four years in Toronto, and now call Pittsburgh home.

I relish in:

  • understanding people, from broad patterns to deep details.

  • making sense of ambiguity, visualizing messy concepts, and translating fuzzy insights.

  • facilitating generative workshops and empowering people to design for themselves.

  • prototyping, mocking up, making real, and trying stuff.

Before making my way to design I completed a double degree in bioethics & genetics, worked as a sexual health & relationships educator in Melbourne, and ran an educational maker space in Toronto.
