About me

I am a creative experience designer with over 10 years experience working in interactive digital media for world renowned clients, agencies and startups. I am extremely passionate about combining digital and physical to create exciting new user experiences in the form of interactive installations and products. Working with clients directly as well as leading teams, my role often spans across creative and experience design. Following user centred design processes I will lead the project from initial concepts & strategy through to design, build and delivery, testing and validating at each stage. I have worked on large-scale interactives in museums and retail spaces, touch-screen, web and mobile and have led teams in both agile and waterfall environments.
