About me
I design products that create new opportunities for people, brands, and businesses. I’ve held executive roles at R/GA, SapientNitro, and Zone before moving to The Dots, The "LinkedIn for Creatives." I’ve won 100+ awards including two Cannes Lions and inclusion in the BIMA 100 in 2014 and 2016. I write and speak about design and tech at Fast Company, The Drum, SXSW, and IxDA. I am a passionate advocate for diversity in the creative industries and sit on the board for Creative Equals.

    MASTERCARD IDENTITY CHECKPasswords are a pain. Over 30% of online purchases are abandoned because consumers cannot remember their passwords. What's worse, from a security POV is that 51% of people use similar passwords over and over.

    Readers wanted TNL to make sense of the “breaking news” that bombards us all. That meant giving them insightful and reliable reporting, up-to-date analysis and provocative comment on their own terms. The new design updates a digital edition at fixed times – morning. midday, and in the evening. Readers can save articles in their “my articles” section of the app to read offline whenever and wherever they like. They can share their favorite articles with friends and family. And for the first time ever The Times & Sunday Times and all their great magazines and supplements are together in one place.
