Profile image of Deb

Web developer & user experience designer.


I use my technical and people skills to tackle social and environmental challenges and create a positive impact.

About Me

I believe in the power of people to drive positive change in the world. This led me to study (and complete) my Masters of International Development and my Bachelors of Educational Studies.

I am very curious and love learning. I'm always asking questions, and I find many subjects and topics fascinating. I never do anything halfway or halfheartedly, I approach challenges with zest, enthusiasm, and determination.

Thinking of new ways to do things is a crucial part of who I am. I'm never content with doing something the conventional way if a better way is possible.

I am passionate about using my knowledge and skills to help organisations and businesses operate and grow in a sustainable and socially and environmentally responsible way. I aspire to co-create an equitable and inclusive world.
