About Me

I’m the Legal Ops Analyst at Blackbird. I’m from a small town just north of Newcastle but now living in Sydney with my partner and his beautiful dog. I love reading, walking, listening to podcasts, pistachio ice cream, coffee and think that dogs are the most perfect creatures to walk our planet.

My favourite thing to do is go walking. It’s a great way to explore a place, good for the soul and I find it to be the least stressful form of mindfulness.

What do you do at Blackbird?

I support Justine, our General Counsel, and Alex, our Head of Operations, with everything legal, financial and compliance in relation to our funds and investments

What did you do before Blackbird?

Before Blackbird, I worked as a banking and finance lawyer at Allen & Overy. I have also worked in the startup and fintech teams at KPMG in both Hong Kong and Sydney. At university, I was involved in a Jack Ma Foundation scholarship program which focused on leadership in innovation, politics and industries and, through the program, had the opportunity to visit Alibaba HQ in China and meet with Jack Ma.

What do you believe that others do not?

More people should take the road less travelled. And also that free food doesn't have calories...
