I design things

by diving into problems and puzzles, finding out how to solve them creatively and have an outcome that meets the needs of customers and businesses.

ABOUT ME

I have a human-centred focus and my goal is to have fun solving problems and experiment with new ideas and technologies. I want to test and iterate solutions until the we are firm in our understanding and direction, and that the outcome will be the best for users and the business.

I'm a big thinker who also looks at the details to understand the system and the requirements. Being cross functional, I am comfortable with the full digital delivery process, including tendering, research, requirements gathering, UX design, supporting the creative design team, supporting the development team, and overseeing the quality assurance within agile projects.

I've been creatively solving problems for clients in a variety of industries including travel, banking, utilities, government, financial services, galleries and not-for profits, working in teams to create engaging and interactive experiences for websites, online portals, mobile applications, interactive walls, and large scale interactive games.
