Product designer with heavy focus on UI

I’m a product designer with 11+ years’ experience, enabling global organisations to create usable and meaningful brand experiences. I have a creative problem solving and research led approach with obsessive attention to detail. Working with household brands such as PokerStars, Philips, Chelsea FC and Lloyds bank to create delightful, human centred products.

Designing mobile, responsive web, and software interfaces, I lead the end to end design process from discovery to execution and built design systems and style guides from the ground up. The latest one being PokerStars Global design system.

When I’m not at work, I love to travel, play guitar and embark on outdoor adventures.
