My Values
I'm a business and service designer who is very passionate about using his skills to help establish and develop companies with impact-driven missions.

Our world is driven by companies and governments who lack any values. The result? Neo-liberalism has been allowed to pragmatically exploit both our fellow citizens and the planet in the name of growth. I don't believe in this and have been trying very hard to reintroduce values into the mechanism that drive the clients I work with. More on this to come

My Skills
As a hybrid of these two disciplines, I find that I'm able to work at different resolutions, whether that be a product's overarching strategy and revenue streams, or zooming-in to the way the behaviours that drive every micro-touch point.

In recent years I've been keenly looking at how we might merge data and design processes. In a project this year, we used SEO analysis to map the psychology and behaviour of our user groups. This allowed us to craft quantifiable value propositions. This project will here very soon!

Born in Australia (I have EU citizenship), I grew up on Sydney Harbour, rigging my little boat up whenever the conditions got wild. I've lived in over seven countries and have over the years picked up a keen love for adventure. I've gone on long treks through places as far north as the Arctic Circle and have climbed mountains all over the world. I'm currently training my mountaineering skills with the hope of becoming fully independent on long summit trips.
