About me

I'm an experienced design leader with experience in startups, consultancy & major eCommerce companies.

I'm passionate about product design and our many tools; from user needs research and prototyping a concept of the future, down to the simple but impactful experiments that make progress along the way,

 

I strive to connect teams to both meaningful user outcomes and business value, through the skills, methods and experience I've gained as an individual contributor, facilitator, coach and manager..

You'll find me most at home: speaking to and observing users, facilitating design thinking related workshops and coaching people/ teams within an empowered product development organisation. 

As well as getting hands-on with software, to stay on top of my craft through work and side projects.
