Why work with me

Experienced

I’ve been doing this since I was 10

I've been wireframing, designing and coding websites since I was in primary school. Two decades on, my design skills span multiple disciplines and are sharper than ever.

Collaborative for good

Driven by positive change

I use my skillset to help communities, individuals and organisations thrive through meaningful digital experiences. Collaboration and open communication is at the heart of my approach.

Investing in a better world

Investing in a better tomorrow

I use green service providers and offset my carbon emissions to help preserve our home planet. I also use privacy-centric tools for communication and gathering research.
