Hello, I’m a designer and scenographer with a love of storytelling and narrative. 

Over the past 15 years I’ve worked as a graphic designer both locally and internationally. Always drawn to the arts, my clients have included Sydney Symphony Orchestra, Bell Shakespeare, London’s Southbank Center and Hayward Gallery, as well as a handful of television networks and smaller theatre makers. I’ve also worked with some publishing houses, corporate and retail clients plus some design and advertising agencies.

In 2018 I completed a BFA in Design for Performance at the National Institute of Dramatic Art (NIDA). Throughout my degree, I collaborated with students and professionals on some really fun projects. I spent four weeks with designer Annie Atkins in Dublin, Ireland, learning about graphic props design for film. For my graduation show, I was designer for La Mariage Forcé by Moliére with director Ellen Wiltshire; co-production designer on short film Optics; production designer for Triple J Unearthed Music Video If You Were My Hero, plus co-designer on EXPONIDA 2018. I was the lucky recipient of the Billy Ostadal Scholarship and The William Fletcher Foundation Grant.

In 2017, I completed a secondment as an art department assistant on Bruce Beresford’s feature film ‘Ladies in Black’. I was co-art director on the award winning short film The Horrific Murder Of Grigori Rasputin and visual projection designer for NIDA musical Hello AgainDuring 2016, I was design and costume assistant on productions of Woyzeck, A Midsummer Night’s Dream and The Season at Sarsaparilla.

I love to design across performance, film, exhibition and environment, with a focus on concept and research. When I’m not working, I travel and take photos. I’m an avid reader with a love of magical realism. I swim in the ocean as often as I can.
