About me
A great user experience is my end goal, which is why I continually challenge my designs, with the end product to be sustainable and engaging. By balancing reason and streamlined functionality with out-of-the-box creativity, I work to bring the client's vision to life, relying on observation, collaboration, experimentation, iteration and the necessary testing to make the most informed design decisions for your project. I love to design simple, sustainable, efficient, enjoyable design solutions — solutions people don't even think about, but go to again and again. It becomes a part of their lives and once it touches them, they can't stop coming back. My goal is for people to think, "How did I ever live without this?" I’m interested in becoming part of a dynamic, collaborative and supportive environment, though I am also comfortable flying solo. With a combined expertise in UX design and project management, I navigate through various industries, projects and teams with an adaptable attitude.

Projects
  • KiTTi
    KiTTiSantander brought the concept of the “money pot” to the digital age. The idea is quite simple: create a pot, put money in, and spend it with your friends.

  • Portfolio
    PortfolioI needed to showcase my work and didn't want to use a template. The site needed to showcase the varied range of work that I have done but also my experience and personality. The challenge: Creating a portfolio to showcase my work on a strict deadline. Wearing all the hats at once, from research, mood board, creating the style guide, finding icons, writing content, sketching, designing and coding. A team of one person and 3 weeks to design my portfolio.
  • GetIn8!
    GetIn8!Get In The Net, a social game app company, had the idea to translate a paper game into a mobile platform. The game is played along while watching a live broadcast of a soccer game. It consists of selecting a team; players are allocated random field positions where the goal may be scored. If the goal is scored from the position allocated, player wins and the others lose for this round. The game resets after each goal. The company didn’t have a presence on the mobile gaming market and the app was to be launched for the start of the soccer season, our team at Nimbletank was commissioned to create the gaming app. It needed to be simple to play and to follow without distracting football fans from the game they were watching in real time.
