About Me

Originally from New Zealand but now living in Amsterdam, I love making time to obsess over pixels, record a podcast or speak at events. Today I split my time between working at Atomic, side projects, client work, writing and speaking. Whether it's working on a cover feature for a magazine or speaking to a crowd of Designers in Denmark, I believe in living a creatively fulfilled life through making time for doing what I love.

Oh and it's not all work no play. The New Zealand lakes and forests were my backyard, so I always make time away from the screen – which usually involves hiking up mountains.

Speaking & teaching

Over the last year I've had the privilege of speaking at a few events and hosting a handful of workshops about prototyping. It's so rewarding to be able to contribute and give back to the community in this way.

I'm always on the look out for interesting and inspiring events to participate in. If you have an event coming up, please drop me a line.
