About

I'm a digital designer, fascinated by the relationship between humans and product interfaces.

I’m a strategic design leader with an extensive depth of knowledge, proven experience and strong commercial acumen acquired through a 20-year career spanning the UK and Australia.

A natural, inquisitive problem solver and qualified Industrial Designer, I’ve been applying my skills and interest in human factors, HCI and the relationship between humans and product interfaces to my work in digital design since graduation.

I'm currently Experience Design Director at Origin Energy. Prior to that I held the combined roles of CDO and MD for the UX agency I co-founded - Thirst Studios. Here, I’ve built, nurtured and lead an exceptional team, providing world-class services spanning UX, CX & service design for high profile clients across a range of digital transformation projects.

I also love to write, speak and teach on the subject of design; I am a regular guest lecturer to the Masters of Interaction Design students at Monash University, speak at conferences such as UX Australia & UX New Zealand and have taught workshops on user centred design principles to teams at a number of organisations including Beyond Blue, World Vision and Education Services Australia.
