Let's talk about ...
Crafting Loved Products & Services.
From Indigenous Australians to corporate Austrians I have had the privilege to work around the world with diverse teams on complicated problems. I have helped these teams create simple, fun and delightful product & services that are radically user focused. I take pride in making solutions that don't just sit in between slides but enter the world creating impact and meaning for its users.
Currently, you can see my work as a Lead Service Designer at Taxfix.
Here are some recent highlights from journey: an article on prototyping at scale, or talking about ritual design or hacking user research
Although much of my work is hidden under NDA's you can see evidence of my previous work as a Senior Product Designer at Zalando, IXDS (now PwC), Factory Berlin, Design Factory Melbourne, Goodpatch, Telekom's Creation Center, Mimi, & Lykon
The power of being visual.
About all things coffee.
It's the start of every great day and every great conversation.
As well as being a talented designer, I was also a professional Barista with 8+ years experience.
Happy to give out my personal tips and tricks
and have a lively discussion about the holy beans.
Coffee is just one of the many things I love;
We can also chat about - hackathons, cycling, and kayaking too.
Most importantly is to just start!
If you want to know more, let’s meet for a coffee!

Thank you for your kind words.
