I'm a firm believer in the power of narrative in helping people navigate complex ideas.
The projects that inspire me most are those that push past common practice into innovative areas of design and technology. We've worked with pioneers in both these areas, and enjoy the challenge of communicating what they've achieved to broader audiences.
In our communications work we pull apart the elements of what these pioneering projects have done and build them into narratives that form the backbone of campaigns. These narratives guide people in understanding why and how they should follow in the footsteps of pioneers before them.
I'm excited by what technology can do for people and the places we live in.
Technology incorporates a far wider range of tools and resources than we commonly consider. Processes, systems, knowledge and design are the key tools we can use to solve problems, and in turn generate value for both organisations and our personal lives.
Technology cannot simply be purchased. It must be systematically implemented and appropriately applied to solve the problem it was selected for. Intrinsic to this process is the ability to clearly communicate requirements and how we wish to apply technology as a solution.
