My self-summary
Aussie living in the city. Manhattan via Melbourne and Paris.

I like my food spicy, my whisky neat, and my humor dry. Few things are better than starting my day with a good, fast run.

I get nerdy about design, technology, and good movies (almost anything with a high Rotten Tomatoes rating). I'm also a bit of a Francophile.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm in my dream job as a design strategist at a management consulting firm. I use design methods to help businesses better serve their customers. Customer research, innovation, technology, and frequent travel. Half suit-wearing consultant, half jeans-clad designer. The jeans usually win!

Otherwise, I'm making the most of the city - out for dinner, drinks, a movie, a show... all the typical New York things people do with their disposable income.
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 - Cormac McCarthy is probably my all-time favorite author, but I find it hard to have favorites here. Most of my reading lately has been work-related, so 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, Captain Fantastic, and The Nice Guys. But Marvel's films, Nightcrawler, Tarantino, and the Coen brothers, all have a special place in my heart.

Shows - Curb Your Enthusiasm, Star Trek, Battlestar Galactica, Game of Thrones, Veep, Breaking Bad, and the West Wing are some all-time favorites. Trying to find time for The Night Of, Narcos, and Stranger Things.

Music - Jazz, rock, indie, random bits of electro. Miles Davis to Caravan Palace, via Girl Talk, Manu Chao, DJ Shadow, Tame Impala... And a randomly awesome indie 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 grigio, whisky (neat pour), and any well-made cocktail.
The six things I could never do without
- A design challenge to keep my mind occupied
- New York's food, drink and culture
- A good flat white
- 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 us improve the world we live in. How better politics would also help.

Escaping the city for a weekend getaway. Or just taking a cooking class.
On a typical Friday night I am
Unwinding after a long week - usually in one of the Villages or nearby Brooklyn, grabbing dinner and a few drinks with friends.

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 balance intensity with light-heartedness and a quick wit.

You're active, ambitious, and eternally curious about the world - and have a passion you want to share.

You want to skip the small talk.
