In addition to working as a user experience designer, I have a diverse background in engineering, creative technology and motion production. And over the past few years, I have been studying mechanical engineering and fabrication and run a small workshop in Melbourne creating custom metal products such as furniture.
I am very passionate about working with and developing the local community. In 2012, I founded Hackduino, a community meetup group focused on electronics and multi-disciplinary engineering. More recently, I have established the Melbourne chapter of the Interaction Design Association (IxDA) and look forward to growing our community of IXD/UX designers.
