Bachelor of Industrial Design (honours) 2008

As a digital product designer I get to utilize my abilities as a storyteller and problem solver, to improve the lives of people, musicians and small businesses. I've been fortunate enough to work on products that require me to think about broader cultural trends and the minutiae of how people think about and use products.

Monash gave me a foundation for how to think about and break down problems. Even though I'm designing in Sketch not Rhino and designing mobile apps not mobile phones, I am still using the same principles of research, analysis, prototyping and iteration to come to a solution.
