Bio

I have the same unbridled joy for design as I do for dairy-free ice cream. I can’t get enough, will always say yes when it comes my way and will share my joy with anyone who comes into my radius. I am a visual thinker in the extreme, I love the marriage of illustration and typography, I crave colour and wants to do the best I can with the skills I have. I believe that my life purpose is to create beautiful things that delight, move, help and encourage my fellow earth dwellers.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

Tell us why you're the best applicant in under 50 words

Because to me, a career in design is more than big agencies. Although this internship offers incredible benefits, I believe that designers should first deeply care about improving other's lives. WGI will allow me to widely share my skills and joy, something that I will repay with extreme enthusiasm.

1. What's the most courageous thing you've ever done?

Physical: Run off a 200 metre cliff in Queenstown with nothing but a harness and elastic between me and certain death. Mental: Decide that my skills and passions were valuable enough to dedicate my life worth to.

2. How are creativity and innovation related?

How are they not related? Creativity and innovation are so intimately joined, I don't think you can have one without the other. To cause something to come into being requires innovation and inspiration, and what good is an innovative thought without the means to bring it to life?

3. Why do companies need clarity and creativity?

Because human beings can only listen and care about so much. For companies to be able to cut through the noise, you need something that will cause them to look twice, and then understand exactly what it is you are trying to say.

4. You have 30 minutes of free time. What do you do with it?

Work on the picture book I am illustrating in memory of my father in law. His first grandchild is due any second and I would like to have something tangible that we can remember him by.

5. What is one risky and bold goal in life you have? Or, if you could dedicate your life to solving one problem, what would it be?

I have always felt the need to do something about the terrible problem of human trafficking. I visited a couple anti-trafficking organisations in Thailand and Nepal and the scale of sex trafficking is heartbreaking. It is my goal to be able to use the skills I have to make something that will provide the people working on the ground with the resources they need to make a real difference.

6. Explain your creative process

It always starts with a sketch. Pencil to paper, get all of the crazy thoughts out on a page and then start the long process of critiquing, refining, redefining, finalising and always, always getting feedback from others.

7. What is the best advice that you have been given?

Live to give

8. What is your definition of creativity?

An idea generated by a human that is unique to them, and then the evolution, expression and realisation of that idea.

9. What 10 songs are on your favorite playlist right now?

Around the world by Daft Punk, Age of Consent by Justine Der, Bad Bad News by Leon Bridges, Rose of Sharon by Mumford and Sons, Juice by Young Franco, OneFourThree by Hermitude, What Kinda Music is This by Tom Misch and Yussef Dayes, April Sun in Cuba by Dragon, We Ain't Feeling Time by FKJ, There She Go by Garren Sean

10. How do you want people to remember you?

That I made them feel cared for and happy. And that I had phenomenal style.

Have you been convicted of a crime and/or a felony? If so, what was the offense? State the city, country, and date.
