My goals in life are simple: to improve life through meaningful design and to change the world through education, empowering people with the skills and confidence to create their own ripples of change. I'm passionate about creating great experiences that solve real problems for real people in their contexts.
I like the term Human Centred Design as it reminds me that design is not simply about the end product; it’s about the humans who work beside you, the client you work with, the staff who support the solution, and the community who benefit from it. Design is at it’s best when all stakeholders co-design a future that considers people, planet, and profit.
I have the uncontrollable habit of always looking for a better way to do things which is sometimes a challenge, but always very fulfilling to see real improvements and tangible results for the people I’ve worked with.

Academy Xi was a great learning partner for the ABC. The training course was built for our specific needs and Academy Xi gave us the opportunity to select the course & trainer we wanted. As we understood the learning outcomes for our team Academy Xi customised the course to suit us.
Our trainer was perfect – an expert in the field, with ample experience and practical examples, this made our learning extremely effective.
The space easily fit 17 designers – the astro turf and ping-pong tables gave a fresh approach to the learning environment as well.
Finally the team at Academy Xi were a delight to work with, configuring the space to keep it fresh.
I would not hesitate to highly recommend their tailored approach to our learning and will doubtless be using them again as we move our training schedule forward.
The Digital team at UNICEF reached out to Academy Xi to help us introduce, engage and inspire the whole organisation around current technologies including VR.
The team at Xi designed and hosted a practical, bespoke VR workshop for us. It ensured everyone at the organisation could learn about and trial VR, regardless of their technical knowledge or professional background.
Our whole team was really excited and engaged throughout the workshop, including our CEO who is since very interested in leveraging off VR and AR into our digital work. We’re now inspired and more confident technologies like VR can really help change people’s perceptions, build empathy and shift attitudes around key global issues, all which are at the core of our day-to-day work.
The instructors are engaging, experienced and dynamic. They know the subject matter to such a high level that you never get the feeling you are following a rigid syllabus, it’s relevant, understandable and most importantly you instantly understand how it can be applied in a real project scenario.
Our workshop at Academy Xi was excellent. Very inspiring and motivating and very digestible for my staff. I would recommend this program to companies who are striving to leverage innovation in delivering their strategies and success. Everyone who participates in this program will extract value and become a stronger leader and driver of innovation in their organisation.
