About me

 

I am an enthusiastic and adaptable User Experience and Interface Designer, with my interest in the design reaching back to my early-teens. Over the years I have had experience with many different forms of creative work, working part and past time as a photographer, a graphic designer, video artist and more recently as a User Experience Designer. Through such experiences I have become a creative-minded thinker who likes to engage with others. I work very well in groups or alone to develop new ideas to a high standard with the user always in mind. I am very meticulous about my work and I strive to improve experiences, there is always room for improvement. I graduated from Durham University in June 2015 BA in Archaeology Graduate of UXDi7 - General Assembly London
