Some rapid fire facts... I’m a 90s kid who memorised the Pokédex before I knew how to read. Travel is a huge part of my life and I've been to over 50 countries. I would say that I love to cook, but it’s probably more accurate to say that I love to eat. I’ve been vegan for about 8 years, but occasionally will eat dairy if I'm traveling overseas. I love my sport; I’m a lifelong St George Illawarra Dragons fan (pray for me), a sucker for all things Seattle, a card-carrying tifoso (with a soft sport for Daniel Ricciardo of course), and a fervent supporter of our Australian national teams.
I’m currently studying a Master of Teaching (Secondary) at UNSW. I’ve always wanted to be a teacher, and now I’m finally doing it. I’ll be teaching English and Society & Culture, two subjects that are close to my heart and that I believe have a lot to offer young people.
For the last 9 years or so I’ve worked in tech in various roles at the intersection of development and design. At various times I’ve been called a software engineer, a design technologist, a product designer, and more. I have a strong background in design systems and spent a lot of my tech career building them, scaling them and maintaining them. Most recently I’ve spent almost 4 years working on the Atlassian Design System with a bunch of really clever people.
I live in sunny Sydney, Australia with my beautiful partner and my two cats, Luna and Boof. My little home means everything to me.
