What kinds of projects are you looking for?

I want to work with smart teams who are looking to push beyond the 'silicone valley aesthetic' and create products people love to use. While I consider myself a generalist, my strength (and passion) lies in executing on beautiful, delightful and meaningful products. From conceptual work through to detailed design systems, I'm quite comfortable at both ends of the spectrum. I'm currently fascinated by fitness, health, AI & climate tech.

What makes your work unique?

I'm multifaceted. I'm equally comfortable solving big, difficult UX problems as I am getting into the details of brand, motion & filmmaking. I've worked in leadership and IC roles, and have experience working in large, established companies (Google, Slack, Logitech), small start-ups, and the world's best design studios. That breadth of experience gives me a level of comfort whatever the company.

What does your creative process look like?

My process is adaptable to my clients needs - team size, scope, timelines all play a part. But ultimately, everything circles around what problem we're trying to solve for people, and ensuring that is at the heart of everything we do. I'll always be a champion for the user, because ultimately, they'll be our toughest, and most important critic.
