Selection of Works
2019 | Featured Project
In the later stages of 2018, I was presented the opportunity to collaborate on an interactive marketing project with Mellini Sloan; Lecturer of Urban and Regional Planning at the Queensland University of Technology. Mellini took a small group of students to South-East Asia, along with a planning exercise, designed to be both educational and a keep sake for those participating. Produced in Adobe Illustrator, paper lanterns representing iconic Brisbane buildings were produced, including 180 Ann, QUT P Block and Brisbane City Hall.

Description work in progress.
Mentoring | 2018 (ongoing)
As an Old Collegian and College Prefect of the Class of 2010, I am so thankful that I am part of the Ormiston College community, even if I did graduate almost 10 years ago! Currently, I find myself assisting the students and the Visual Arts Department in building props and contributing to the set design to their upcoming musical production of Mary Poppins.
I had the pleasure of being a part of the judging panel for the College's 2018 Biennial Wearable Art Competition and Exhibition. Prior to the event, I was aware that the task of selecting a winner would be difficult as. When I had the opportunity to workshop with the students, they had some very strong concepts and ideas in mind which they wanted to visually portray through pieces. The student who 'grew' her ensemble, made of living plants and succulents, took out the top spot!
Dramanti Artisan Roasters
2018 | Graphic Design
Dramanti Artisan Roaster is a local business with two cafes located in Wynnum and Morningside. The business decided that it was time to refresh their brand so I received the pleasure of being engaged to explore their new marketing collateral.
Working with Dramanti has given me the opportunity to learn about the pre-press, printing and production processes of a variety of formats. It has also presented me with the opportunity to work with other local businesses to produce the best, and most efficient, solutions for Marija and Dragan Sestic of Dramanti.
The vinyls for the business’ vehicles were designed and produced with Best Signs, based in Morningside, while the team members’ T-shirts were screen printed by The T Shirt Mill, based in West End. Star Outdoor produced the A-Frame and wind barrier signage.
Currently, I have been engaged to work on the opening of their new cafe in Brisbane CBD, Shortlist. A highlight, so far, is that over 100 T-shirts have gone into production with Shortlist’s logo that I had the pleasure of developing with the client group.
University | 2017
As a part of the first of two Master Studios for the year, students were asked to develop a concept design for an art gallery at Sunshine Coast. It was first determined in the design brief that The Junkyard, located in Maroochydore, will allow the public to learn about street art and will provide an escape and a safe place for street artists to come together and learn from one another.
The Junkyard was then presented with a number of strengths and opportunities throughout the exploration and decision making that occurred in the design development stage of the semester.
2017 | University
For my final Studio and semester of my Master of Architecture degree, students were asked to deliver a project that would contribute to the reactivation and revitalisation of Nambour, located at the Sunshine Coast.
Petrie Parklands is a refreshing, permeable and bold contemporary civic effect for Nambour, incorporating the Nambour Aquatica and other facilities and assets. From Petrie Creek to the south, Nambour Aquatica has an inviting and unmistakable presence as it overlooks the newly introduced Splash Park and provides surveillance across the Skate Park. Petrie Parklands is set to become a new source of pride of the community revitalization for the people of Nambour.
Tommy Little's Adventures
Social Media | 2018 (ongoing)
From something that started as a bit of fun between close friends, quickly became something of a local Instagram sensation.
Though a way of developing and expressing my abilities in Adobe Photoshop, the Tommy Little’s Adventures Instagram page became a way of keeping up with current trends and targeting my content towards a specific audience.
In addition to the technical side of my content, one of the largest drivers resulting in the continuation of the Instagram page is the smile the page spreads amongst my followers. The comments I receive, though small, mean a great deal and drive me to continue creating content.
2017 | University
As part of DAN235, Project Management, within the Master of Architecture course, students were asked to prepare a feasibility study regarding a three development applications on a particular site. Within this study students were required to apply critical thinking and provide an assessment of the feasibility, sustainability and overall practicality of the three alternate proposals for the site, concluding with which application they believe would be most appropriate.
In my early career thus far, I have been fortunate enough to have been a part of the environments of Cottee Parker and Fulton Trotter Architects over almost five years of full time and casual employment. Though incredibly rewarding, I am actively seeking and always open to new challenges in the field of Architecture and Graphic Design where I can apply and develop skills already obtained, as well as upskill in areas I have not been exposed to yet.
I regard myself as highly competent in ArchiCAD, along with InDesign, Photoshop and Illustrator. These software packages have been heavily utilized within both a university environment and a professional one.
