My Journey

From a young age, I’ve been curious.

After school each day, I’d take apart old computers, build contraptions and I even tried my hand at radio broadcasting.

When I discovered the internet, a whole new world of curiosity opened.

From the computer labs in primary school, to the laptop out and about, every week saw me researching and testing a new online platform or app. I would build websites for the fun of it. Systems for the challenge of it.

I ran with different curiosities in my own projects along the way (see Side Projects, below). They were opportunities for learning, networking and building understanding through doing.

I began building skill sets, and mindsets.

For some time, I struggled with different disciplines pulling me in different directions. Interested in APIs, but also marketing strategy, but also UX, and public speaking, and writing?

But I can see that a combination of things can amplify each other. 1+1=3.

The common thread was this: Solving problems with digital solutions.

As I take these skills into the market, I've been able to continue to hone in on what I love doing most.

At the end of Year 11 I received an early offer into university to study business, leaving school early. A few months into study, I deferred, instead deciding to create my own business education.

Today, I work in a mix of startups and agencies:

  • analysing problems that exist (for clients, customers, or the business)
  • conceiving solutions using a digital-first, empathy-driven approach
  • communicating the value of those solutions to stakeholders

One day, I want to start my own thing.
