Drinking digital lattes and building cool web things.
In a paragraph
I am a freelance information designer and creative developer with expertise in data visualisation, digital cartography, front-end development, and graphic design. My work — for clients including the International Institute for Strategic Studies, Lowy Institute, Bob Brown Foundation, Federal DSTG, and the Youth National Security Strategy — has gathered hundreds of thousands of views and has been reported on by major news outlets. I am based in Australia but work globally, so reach out if you'd like to collaborate.

I grew up near the Murray River and moved to Sydney to study a Masters in Robotic and Biomedical Engineering at UNSW.
In 2016, I studied on scholarship at UC Santa Barbara. I lived with a bunch of creative people who taught me there are many different ways to live happily.
In 2017, I spent time on small farms in Uganda and returned the following year to co-launch Kua, a social enterprise that does climate-positive coffee. Five friends and I ran Kua from a sharehouse with a tonne of coffee in the shed. We started a band and played at our own house parties.
In 2018, I backpacked through India for six weeks.
In 2019, after handing in my thesis, I cycled around Taiwan on a pushbike.
In 2020, I started pursuing web things. I was drawn to data journalism as a vehicle for making information engaging, fun, and viral. I started work at the Lowy Institute, building interactives, maps, and infographs for policy research.
I am now a fulltime freelancer, having worked with leading organisations to find new ways to show their work and tell data-driven stories.
I like working on big issues or at the crossroads of fun and impact. If that sounds like you, please say hello.
