Hello. G'Day. Hola. 你好. Ciao. Bonjour.
Nice to meet you. I am a Human-Centred Designer and partner at RENY®Studio, I obsess over the interdisciplinary nature of how Design Thinking can pioneer transformation in screen design, service design, system design and strategy, across sectors such as education, health, government, technology, the social sector and business.
My work revolves around a simple question; where should we turn our attention for creative exploration, to ensure we continually design better outcomes for humanity? In my day job, I help people in organisations to think like a designer, empowering them to better develop, communicate, and pursue strategy and pioneer purpose-led transformation.
