About me
I am a User Experience Designer with over ten years of industry experience. After my first work experience at IDEO (Munich + NYC), I've worked extensively with BBC, S&P Global Platts primarily located in London. During my time at BBC, I've worked on iPlayer, BBC Music & Radio, BBC News, Glastonbury, and led the final stages of BBC Three going online. Since then, I worked as Design Consultant for S&P Global Platts; between London & New York. Central projects included a vessel tracking platform & the full digitialization of the Commodities Markets. In the current global situation I am embracing design work with a remote work setup, and also happy to engage in travels when necessary. I am keen to work with multidisciplinary teams but also comfortable to pivot forward independently.
