About me

  • Regional Background

I am a Consulting Operations Officer for TechnologyOne – a job I never thought I’d end up in while possessing a Bachelor’s degree in Game Design.

When I began my university journey, I was equally nervous and excited. Although I had many people try to steer me away from what I wanted to do, I let my passion and love for game design guide me through my degree.

Now in my career, my creativity and love for all things tech gets to shine every day. Although what I’m doing is vastly different to where I thought I’d be, I love being able to use the skills I learnt in Game Design to help efficiently review and drive innovation in our processes.
