My self-summary
Ambitious, yet laid-back Aussie living in the city. Manhattan via Melbourne and Paris.

I like my food spicy, my whisky neat, and my humor dry. And my films & music (mostly) indie.

I'm a bit of a nerd. I'm passionate about technology and design, and how they can change the world for the better.

The people I like most are motivated, curious, and won't argue about the Oxford comma.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a design strategist - basically a translator between business, design, and technology. Half suit-wearing consultant, half jeans-clad designer. The jeans usually win.

Apart from that, I'm a typical aspiring New Yorker - Art galleries, Brunches, Cinemas, Drinks, East Village.
I’m really good at
I have perfect pitch, which has definitely helped my karaoke game.

And I speak fluent French, having studied in Paris. Parles-tu français aussi?
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. Trying to build something new is hard. I'm 100% open to more recreational recommendations.

Movies - I'm mad for indies, sci-fi, and anything that makes you think. Lately that's been The Lobster and Captain Fantastic.

Shows -Curb Your Enthusiasm, Star Trek and the West Wing are all-time favorites. Trying to find time for The Night Of and Narcos.

Music - Jazz, rock, indie, random bits of electro. Miles Davis to Caravan Palace, via Girl Talk, Manu Chao, DJ Shadow. And a randomly awesome summer Spotify playlist I put together.

Food & Drink - Italian, Mexican, and Thai are my favorites, but I love trying new cuisines. The spicier the better. I like pinot grigios, whiskies (in a neat pour), and most well-made cocktails.
The six things I could never do without
- A design challenge to keep my mind occupied
- New York's cultural, culinary and drinking scenes
- New movies and TV shows to watch
- 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 us improve the world we live in.

Where to go next for dinner or drinks. What's the next movie I should watch.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out in one of the Villages or nearby Brooklyn, having dinner and a few drinks with friends. Maybe catching a movie or a gig.
You should message me if
You balance NY intensity with light-heartedness and a quick wit.

You appreciate a guy who is eternally curious about the world and is excited to share his passion for learning with you.

You want to skip the small talk.
