What’s your link
I grew up and went through school in Townsville. My parents (who still live in Townsville) were supportive of my creative abilities from a young age, so naturally I ended up studying Creative Arts at JCU.
Where are you now?
I live with my partner on the Gold Coast, which is pretty sweet. There’s enough happening that there’s always something to do but without the big-city feel. I’m not a fan of traffic or crowds so it’s perfect for me. Lately my focus has been on designing web and mobile applications. I’ve been working for tech start-ups, which is an exciting space to be in right now. I also do freelance branding, web and product design (when I have time) as I still enjoy it enough to do it after hours and on the weekends.
What’s your next project?
I’ve been working on the branding and landing page for an industrial innovation conference, which is an exciting crossover of my skill set. It’s a good break from the norm.
How did your time in Townsville set you up for success?
I learned the theoretical foundations of what I do now from school and my university degree helped me to develop as a designer. I think the people I surrounded myself with in Townsville also helped shape the way I approach design today.
Do you still come ‘home’ to Townsville to visit?
I make fairly regular trips back to Townsville to visit family and friends.
