Professional background: Product Design Lead at Douugh
After graduating from Design in Visual Communication at UTS with first class honours in 2011, I’ve worked for various design studios – conceptualising and innovating new solutions for different brands. With the growth of digital, I’ve shifted focus to shipping consumer products with major impact for both customers and bottom lines. I love learning about user and business needs, identifying unique opportunities, designing systems, and collaborating with product and engineering partners to craft the best possible experiences. More than anything, I’m passionate about making technology that works for people and meaningfully impacts their lives.
