Product designer in Australia, She/her

👋🏼 I'm a product designer with over ten years of experience. I’m curious about empowering people through thoughtful and well-crafted interfaces, collaboration and impactful problem solving.

I love the craft of design, writing good microcopy, talking to customers and making impactful work through collaboration by understanding the problem deeply.

Over the last decade I’ve worked in DevOps, Fintech, Arts and Culture both in-house and at agencies, leading and contributing to strategy and design, and advocating for better outcomes for users through a top-notch experience.

Work Experience

I joined Buildkite as their second product designer when the company went from single to multi-product, and in the first year delivered the end-to-end MVP for the second product, Test Analytics.

Responsibilities:

  • Leading end-to-end product design and user research using lean UX methodologies in the Test Analytics team
  • Facilitating ideation, co-design and critique workshops with the design team and with cross-functional partners

Side Projects

2020
Endeavour Tea

Third-wave tea culture × contemporary design

Endeavour Tea was a small business I co-founded in 2015. It was an Australian specialty tea company with a contemporary view of tea culture, also known as third-wave tea.

Our aims were to engage tea drinkers with delicious, direct-from-source loose leaf tea on our e-commerce store, provide brewing styles and guides, and organise cupping sessions with our local community.

It was really fun to take on print and packaging design, and learn how to create content for a retail brand.

I was responsible for:

  • Art direction and content strategy
  • Brand, web and content design
  • Product development
  • Lifestyle and product photography
