She is currently Editor of Indesign magazine and Managing Editor of Cubes magazine, with Indesign Media. For more than 15 years she has been a passionate advocate of the architecture and design industry within Australia and the wider Indo Pacific region. Through her work on international design festivals, regional awards programs, as well as in print and digital media, she has helped establish numerous major platforms that recognise and celebrate the region’s most exciting architecture and design, and elevate those industry leaders into the global spotlight. “Our region’s design is defined by its fresh, yet hungry entrepreneurial spirit, its bold thought and brave actions, the flawless execution of complex ideas, and world-leading outcomes. I’m fascinated by all the moving parts of our architecture and design community – the businesses, the brands, the big-thinkers and everyday-doers.” Alice remains an active member of the Australian design and media industries as a Moderator, MC, Judge, Commentator, Mentor and Advisor.
