About me & my work:

I am a designer and story teller based in Sydney.

I use my powers to ride the transformational wave to a new way of making and consuming things. My company Seljak Brand uses textile waste to make recycled blankets at a mill in Tasmania, with an eye to expand to other waste streams and new products.

I also work on the marketing team at Australian Ethical Investment, a super fund investing in companies that positively impact people, animals and planet.

I've come from the handcrafted food industry in Brooklyn, New York.

My toolbox has within: purpose-forming, branding, marketing, customer-centric design, fashion, textiles, waste management, social enterprise, Australian manufacturing, systems design and writing.

For fun: drawing and dancing.
