As a designer, the currency I deal in is in – change. Or rather making a change. What I do is help people design for and through change – to initiate it, to activate it, to make a change and to improve their conditions.

My experience has seen me operate as part of an interdisciplinary team on transformational projects where I've helped to enact, transform and make fundamental changes for clients.

It is in these types of situations that I thrive in and have taken the time to develop pervasive skills that allow me to navigate complexity, uncover problems, and co-create unique solutions.

Because my practice requires extremely high levels of 'process knowledge' and facilitation skills to be able to navigate complex situations and organisational cultural challenges, I've forged a dexterity that is proficient and competent in;

  • In multiple design disciplines, methods, tools and techniques (experience, product, service and strategic.)
  • In conducting and facilitating the innovation process through design sprints and capacity building.
  • In utilising cognitive surfacing to orchestrate and synchronise innovative behaviours.
  • In using and implementing 3rd and 4th order design methods such as sensemaking (discover phase; research, problem-finding, synthesis, and framing) and change making (envisioning, prototyping and implementing) methods into various types of problem-spaces.
  • In hypothesis-driven design; to test, frame, validate and articulate value.

This combinatorial quality means I have a propensity to connect the dots and apply my hard skills in an anti-disciplinary manner – leanly at an accelerated rate – to help solve complex problems and provide business recommendations for impact, purpose, and profitability.
