Almost six years ago I finished secondary school and moved to Germany to follow my dream of becoming an international dressage rider for New Zealand. It was this experience, and the people I met along the way that lead me down the path of exploring the integration of both business and design methodologies.
I have just completed a Bachelor of Design with Honours majored in Industrial Design and also a Graduate in a Bachelor of Commerce. I believe this diverse foundation will enhance my creative and innovative problem-solving skills. Creating a model that brings together the methodologies of design (lateral thinking) and business (vertical thinking) in my belief, will drive innovation and success in the corporate and design sectors.
Here is a quote that was shared with me sometime ago. It illustrates how I like to be and think.
"I want to stay as close to the edge as I can without going over. Out on the edge you see all kinds of things you can't see from the center.
Big, undreamed-of things. The people on the edge, they see them first.”
