About Me


An IT Professional with a background in Game Design and User Experience (UX), I have strong knowledge of the UX development cycle, as well as of Information Architecture and a variety of other IT areas.

My greatest strengths are my memory and my capacity to store, reference and work with large amounts of information at once.

My Skills


My Journey So Far

Originally from Woodacre, California (about an hour north of San Francisco), I am an American-Australian with family and friends in both countries. I lived there for 11 years, Margaret River in Western Australia for 3 years, then moved to Melbourne, Victoria in late 2005 and never left.

I was interested in basically everything at high-school, but none of it really grabbed me as a career path. I settled on Games Design and Development, taking the IT course of the same name at Deakin University (Burwood) from 2009 to 2012 and graduating with a Bachelor of IT (with Distinction). Despite enjoying the majority of the subject matter there also, I struggled to find a place to really let loose with the skills I learned… which eventually led me to UX. Turns out, I’ve been doing this stuff for years, just without knowing it or really focusing/refining it. Word-of-mouth brought me to General Assembly Melbourne, and I finished their 10-week User Experience Design Immersive (UXDI) course.

Design Stuff (UX, Digital and Games)

As you may be aware, this site isn’t fully finished yet and I don’t have summaries of everything on every second page, so please avail yourself of the links at the top of the page. They have what you seek, probably.

Personal Stuff


I read quite fast – I can read a 500 page novel in 3.5 hours, having never read it before. Massive Star Wars collection with over 100 different books. I’ll get a picture of that soon. I also enjoy Terry Pratchett’s Discworld, and Matthew Reilly action novels.


Do not get me started on Lego. I have enough of the stuff that any project takes me weeks and occupies the floor (and any other available surface) of an entire room or two. I don’t use instructions either – I make my own stuff from scratch, as with any other design tool I use.


Including but not limited to computer games, card games, board games and mobile apps. I particularly enjoy the computer games League of Legends, Diablo III, StarCraft II, and Gems of War – and the board games 7 Wonders, Ticket to Ride, and Viticulture.


I may be addicted to pizza. Some concerned individuals are convinced that it makes up 1/3 of my diet. I don’t question them.
