My career has allowed me to work across and teach a wide range of UX disciplines and now lead me to specialise in SaaS & complex applications.

From planning the strategy for enterprise products, spending weeks researching onboard cargo ships, working as a “Design team of one”, or building and leading Product and Design teams; I have been fortunate to work with some amazing Designers to deliver exceptional experiences.

Whether it’s defining product direction, establishing principles, portfolio reviews or just some support, the best tool a Designer can have, is another Designer.
