I have significant experience working across an eclectic mix of sectors and disciplines – design, innovation and, more recently, academic & applied research, with earlier careers in agriculture and IT systems support. I am:

: flexible, adaptable and creative.
: a thinker and practical, solutions-focused do-er – model-maker – with attention to form, function and detail.
: compassionate, supportive and encouraging – I aim to bring out the best in others.

Skill sets include applied research, design practice, problem definition & resolution, bid-writing and innovation management. I identify as a designer in the broadest sense and employ designerly thinking in everything I do.
