Working on Kaurna Land
Lorrin has over 20 years experience as a designer, educator and innovator both in Australia and overseas. Her work at TACSI is a merging of her two passions: design and social impact. Lorrin enjoys walking alongside people through the innovation journey and supporting them to define and develop their own ideas to address big social problems.
Lorrin’s portfolio of work includes the KeepCup reusable coffee cup, Asylum Seeker Resource Centre’s (ASRC) Food Justice Truck, and an UniSA research project into the habitability of future submarines using a human centred design approach.
Part of Lorrin’s current role at TACSI is as the Partnership Lead with the Australian Volunteers Program’s (AVP) Innovation Hub. One of the projects that Lorrin and the team are currently working on is building the innovation capability of in-country teams across the Indo-Pacific, supporting them to develop their ideas for volunteering models in their local context.
Known for her positive can-do attitude, Lorrin is an empathetic listener and always approaches problems from the perspective of the end user. She has a wicked sense of humour and never takes life too seriously.
Outside of her work at TACSI, Lorrin enjoys long walks in nature with her kids and gardening in her veggie patch with various degrees of success.
