Aspiration: To excel in a full-time design role, allowing me to make meaningful contributions to the design team while employing my open-minded approach to design. Wentworth (WIT) Alumnus; Industrial Designer with a strong interest in outdoor sport products, medical products, systems design, and products that have an emphasis on environmental responsibility. Adaptability best describes my well-rounded skill set: I have worked as an in-house designer, contractor, and freelancer. Working as a contract designer has strengthened my ability to work independently and cross-functionally.
