I am currently undertaking a master of Design by research and tutoring design studies at the University of Technology in Sydney. I come form a background of media (Radio, TV Internet), community and youth orientated event production and design, and social trends research.

score interest / role:
My thesis is titled `Who would share: designed and undesigned sharing` looking at everyday practice of sharing that exists within the informal economy. Within this I use the frame of sociological consumption to investigate the differences between designed and undesigned PS systems with a focus on consumer practices. I am particularly interested in ideas of the social event of consumption, what it means to own something and the transferring of the symbolic value of products between consumers.
