I'm a multimedia professional who enjoys tinkering in a variety of digital and print media. My passion is turning complex projects into simple and effective end-use products. Whether online or in print, I adopt a "user-first" perspective in every project to ensure the message being shared is also being received. I'm pragmatic, yet easily inspired and flexible to change. I use my resources wisely and believe collaboration is critical to successful outcomes.
From creating print media to online content management and website production, I love to create practical design. Designing through code is challenging, rewarding, and frustrating all at the same time. But when you get it right, it's a celebration!
Experience includes design and layout, print production, writing, direct marketing, digital media, branding, advertising sales, software training and collateral, including digital document management.
I started my career as a newspaper journalist, later moving into the financial industry for nine years, working my way from publicist and writer to district marketing manager and corporate officer. The next 12 years I was a direct-marketing publisher, lifestyle and community news writer, and entrepreneur.
For almost nine years I've been on an operational support team in the government sector, adding new skills in software applications, training and coding, while continuing to provide services in print layout, design, copy-writing, and content management.
Using the resources at hand comes naturally to me, regardless of the medium. Whether I am re-purposing, revising, or reinventing, the approach ultimately fosters a unique and creative outcome which often saves both time and resources.
Smart, talented, Australian, probably like 12 years old, and heaps cooler than I'll ever be.

One of the best cutting edge design resources and inspirations out there. Oh, and Australian.
