A little bit about me

I’m a product designer that loves complex problems and beautifully simple solutions.

I nerd out on products that do what users want and then get the hell out the way. I also strongly believe that taking the ego out of design is a necessary step to creating truly user-centric products.

I’ve created products for a range of users including thrifty Londoners, Ugandan businesspeople, and German energy traders, for companies such as Booking.com, Barclays, RBS, Metlife and Omorovicza. I’m currently working at Canva.

Right now I’m:

📦  Learning about Object-Oriented UX

🔗  Exploring Figma’s new ‘variables’ feature

📖  Reading Victor Papanek’s ‘Design for the Real World’

In my spare time, I’m currently enjoying:

🧗‍♂️  Climbing (despite a debilitating fear of heights)

🕺  Salsa dancing (trying to add to my current repertoire of one single dance move)

🗺️  Maps (just really big on maps)

I also love teaching: I’ve been an Instructor Associate at General Assembly and have given presentations at TechCircus and Founders & Coders.

Like what you’ve heard? Let’s talk.
