About

When my family purchased their first computer in the late 90’s, I would spend hours and late nights as a teen working away on Microsoft Paint, making posters with lots of tacky Word Art and lo-fi deep etching. These were simpler times, when one could embrace using Comic Sans & Papyrus and have people look on in absolute awe at the masterpieces you created on a machine.

As much as I loved to play around with MS Paint, I never even considered design as a career. Instead, when I left school, I fell into the aviation industry and worked most of my early 20’s as a flight attendant. It was while on a year-long business exchange with an international airline, living in a trendy part of East London that I met interesting creative-types on every corner, and felt inspired to open my mind to a creative career.

I returned home from London in 2009,  and quickly went on to study Screen & Media and Digital Media at TAFE, before landing in a four-year honours degree in design at a Sydney Art School. I majored in graphics and textiles, gaining 2nd Class Honours, and I’ve since been working as a multidisciplinary graphic/digital designer for the past 8 years. I graduated from AWARD School in 2017.

I am living proof that you always should pay attention to your inner child. My passion for design was inside of me all along, it just took some detours (and some software upgrades) to lead me back here.
