I recently did a strengths questionnaire and my top strength was ‘love of learning’ with ‘honesty’ coming in at second. Makes sense. I love to learn, I’m always curious about the world and what’s around me. I’m one of those people that watches a movie and goes home to Google the shit out of it.
Recently while I was bedridden (recovering from surgery) I up-skilled myself through Skillshare. An online learning community with thousands of classes in design, business, tech, and more. Anyone can join the millions of members in our community to learn cutting-edge skills, network with peers and discover new opportunities. I’ve learnt how to pickle (yum!), various illustration techniques and online marketing etc. Soo good!

As the Melbourne curator for Design Calendar, its my job to find local (and awesome) design events to pop on the website. Then Covid hit so with the changing landscape Design Calendar decided to create an online community so you can connect with other creatives remotely, who share your passion for ideas and need to make an impact.
+ Connect with creatives who care about the same things you do
+ Access exclusive interviews with creatives from around the world
+ Attend community workshops, talks and wellness sessions
+ Join community initiatives that are making a difference in the world
Those who know me well – in both my professional and personal life – know that I’m organised. Its one of my strengths for being able to work on multiple projects at the same time. Alongside using Google Calendar, my own branded notepads – my biggest superpower – is actually Asana.
It’s a project management tool that helps me to keep track of the tasks, to collaborate and to hit goals.
For all big projects I have with my clients – I set them up with an Asana account. It saves everyone time on the manual tasks of finding information from that random email someone sent last week, or even working out what our priorities are for the day. Its kinda like my personal assistant – where it gives my brain a break by sending me reminders, alerting me to nearing deadlines or letting me know when someone else has commented on a task.
