I'm currently Head of Product at Spaceship. Previously I was studying at UTS and incubating a new startup I founded (Presumi) in the UTS Hatchery. At the end of 2015, I returned from a Product Design Internship at Palantir in Palo Alto.

Prior to that, I was Head of Product at Sumry where I fully rebranded the startup, built their new web platform and created a whole new user interface and experience.

I've also been a Front-End Developer at Zookal, Designer at Flirtey and Digital Designer at Tyro. I previously co-created a web design and development studio — Gunmetal where we had the privilege of working with National Geographic.

When I’m not designing, coding or hustling, I’m usually giving talks on topics like Building Products, Scalable Front-End Architectures or Code Quality. I love talking about anything that I’m passionate about, so get in touch if you’d like me to speak at your event.

I try to design with simplicity and functionality at the core and build my own products on full-stack JavaScript (React, JSX & Express). I also maintain open-source code such as Favicons, Basics, Boilerplate and Catalyst and I was part of the Real Favicon Generator project on GitHub.

In my spare time, I like to travel and photograph interesting environments. I shoot with my iPhone (or the DSLR if I can get my hands on it), edit with VSCO and publish on Instagram.

That’s everything about me. What about you?
