• Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn't really do it, they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while.
    Steve Jobs
  • Have no fear of perfection, you’ll never reach it.
    Salvador Dali
  • The design process, at its best, integrates the aspirations of art, science, and culture.

A little bit about moi.

Curriculum Vitae: download

Thinker, Innovator, Entrepreneur. I love building amazing products. I'm passionate about technology and providing an awesome user experience. Tell me what's wrong, not what's right.

I am the Co-Chief Executive and Co-Founder of DashHound - a social commerce platform. We help makeup enthusiasts discover and purchase the beauty products used by their favorite beauty gurus and influencers.

Giving back is one of my big motivators to succeed. As I embarked on a career in tech I found it difficult to find any technical female role models. With my co-founder and I both being computer-science educated and having engineering backgrounds, we hope to one day be role-models to any young women considering a career in tech. We ultimately aim to be the change we want to see in the world. Building a beauty tech business we hope will inspire other women to pursue a career in tech and even go on to create their own companies.

Current Work.

Currently hacking on Dashhound. Dashhound enables product discovery based on a user's social circle enhancing the confidence and trust in the purchase decision process. While continuously hacking on side projects, I'm also working as a front-end developer and interface engineer for Roam Analytics. Roam is a predictive analytics web platform for sales organisations in life science industries. Roam enables automated analysis, data aggregation, and collaboration to help turn data into decisions. My responsibilities at Roam Analytics include full-stack design and prototyping of data-rich applications.

I'm always looking to expand my portfolio and get stuck into new developments so if you would like to discuss me doing some design/development work for you drop me a message below :). There is no project too small!

On that note, if you would like to bounce some ideas about, and maybe discuss working on an exciting startup project together I'll be more than happy to do this. Just contact me below and I'll get in touch!
