My self-summary
Australian living in NYC. Manhattan via Melbourne and Paris.

I like my food spicy, my whisky neat, and my humor dry.

Good-natured, big movie watcher, bit of a nerd. I enjoy a helathy dose of art, culture, or politics - but I'm equally happy simply exploring new music, food, and places.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a strategist working where my passion lies: at the intersection of technology and design. Consulting, customer research, innovation, and a dash of travel.

My #1 new year's resolution: travel less (for work), so I have more time to enjoy living in New York - dinner, drinks, a movie, a show... all the good ways to spend a bit of disposable income.
I’m really good at
I have perfect pitch, which has definitely helped my karaoke game.

I also speak fluent French, from living and studying in Paris.
The first things people usually notice about me
It's usually the accent: Australian, but often confused for British.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books - Most of my reading lately has been work-related, so I'm 100% open to more fun recommendations.

Movies - I'm mad for indies, sci-fi, and anything that makes you think. Villeneuve, Tarantino, and the Coen brothers all have a special place in my heart.

Shows - No surprises here: Curb Your Enthusiasm, Westworld, Battlestar Galactica, Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, and the West Wing are some all-time favorites. Trying to find time for The Night Of, Narcos, and Stranger Things.

Music - Very eclectic. Jazz, rock, indie, random bits of electro, even some hip hop. Miles Davis to Caravan Palace via Girl Talk; Black Keys to the Beatles via Tame Impala...

Food & Drink - Italian, Mexican, and Thai are my favorites, but I'm always up for something new. The spicier the better. I like a pinot grigio, whisky, and any well-made cocktail.
Six things I could never do without
- A design challenge to keep my mind occupied
- New York's dining, drinking, and cultural scenes
- A well-made coffee
- My running shoes
- My passport (and work visa)
- Chili. Did I mention I like my food spicy?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How better design can help improve the world we live in. How better politics would also help.

Escaping the city for a weekend getaway.
On a typical Friday night I am
Unwinding in the East or West Village, or nearby Brooklyn. Grabbing dinner and a few drinks with friends. Bars, not clubs.

Or, if it's been a *really* long week, crashing at home with Seamless's finest, some wine, and a movie.
You should message me if
You're active, ambitious, and laugh easily and openly. You're eternally curious about the world. You want to skip the small talk.
