I have been working as a designer for nearly 30 years. I began working as a print designer before heading back to study to begin my second career. This threw me into the digital space where I designed elearning and educational games, animations, websites and web apps. I have worked both in Australia and the United Kingdom having gained experience in government and digital agencies and technology companies.
Alongside this, I am a budding filmmaker. I have written short films – one of which was produced in Australia and premiered in the UK. While in the UK, I produced a short film. More recently, I’ve been entering the film festival circuit with my scripts and am working on feature length screenplays now.
I find the two pursuits knit together quite nicely. There are many similarities between storytelling and user experience design. The point at which the two overlap is a very exciting position to be working.

Throughout her entire career she has always had a personal love of travel having trekked half the globe. Her work has extended to international media junkets promoting organisations in Kenya, Rwanda, Morocco, Spain, England, Vietnam and Canada so its a natural extension to create a fresh, innovative travel product here in Australia as part of the next evolution of her career.
