About

It’s nice to meet you! Here’s a little about me.

Live from the stage/my workspace

I’m a graphic designer from New Zealand now based in San Francisco working for Xero.

I studied Visual Design Communication at Massey University Wellington and graduated with first-class honors.

I have worked with businesses of all shapes and sizes but have always been drawn to software businesses at the intersection of design and technology. This is how I found myself working with Xero, a company on a mission to make accounting software beautiful.

I’ve been working at Xero for almost 6 years, giving me immense experience with how to deliver design and marketing across all facets of a business. From the smallest of print collateral pieces to our large-scale global Xerocon events, I’ve been able to develop my own skills and grow with a company that is now a leader in Australia, New Zealand and the UK.

I’m very technically proficient, leaping at the opportunity to learn new software and techniques. I have extensive experience with the Adobe Creative Suite, Sketch and prototyping software which has helped me develop great web products. I enjoy creating motion with Adobe After Effects and Keynote to create industry-leading presentations and video content.
