I’m an urban designer and serial entrepreneur who has spent the past decade pioneering innovative methods to improving cities, now being implemented around the world.
As a co-founder at Neighbourlytics, I bring my social innovation and entrepreneurship strengths to harness big data, and deliver wellbeing insights that inform evidence-based urban development decisions.
Previously, as CoFounder at CoDesign Studio I spearheaded new, community-led approaches to neighbourhood building based on human centred design, that are now proven on 100 neighbourhood renewal projects across Australia.
An experienced key-note speaker on urban innovation, I am regularly invited to present at major fora including TED and UN Summits.
Globally, I spent two years in south-east Asia delivering low-cost slum improvement strategies prior to launching CoDesign Studio. More recently, my urban insights contributed to UN Sustainable Development Goal 11 (Cities) and I was elected to the UN-Habitat Youth Advisory Board for five years.
Named as one of Australia’s 100 Women of Influence by the Australian Financial Review and one of Melbourne’s Top 100 most influential people The Age newspaper, I’ve gained widespread recognition.
I am passionate about cities, travel and social action. I don’t separate my work and personal life: first we shape our cities, then they shape us.
