While she began her career as a graphic designer, in 2006 Cyan co-founded Envato out of her parent's garage. Envato is a creative eco-system, encompassing the largest digital marketplace in the world. Its 7 million members buy and sell digital stock and services, and Envato has delivered over $500 million dollars of earnings to their community of creatives so far.

Cyan was 2015 Telstra Victorian Business Woman of the Year, Australian Financial Review’s 2016 100 Women of Influence Enterprise Winner, and Envato was awarded Job Advisor's Coolest Company for Diversity in 2016. Cyan has recently founded Hey Tiger, a social enterprise chocolate company that creates delicious and stylish chocolate that benefits cocoa farming communities in West Africa.

Last year New Day Box distributed over 2,000 boxes to women around Victoria.
