About me
At AKQA I collaborate with some of the world's best inventors, experimental developers, bravest strategists and inquisitive minds who are determined to do things differently. Driven by imagination and through thoughtful, heart-felt work. I work with kindred spirits who share the same ambition to do things that might never have been done before. My passion lies in solving problems by architecting full costumer services, influential campaigns, connected products and performance strategies effective in a forever changing technology landscape. To create ideas that amplify purpose and make impacts of no small magnitude for the organisations we serve in a world of unrelenting change. Together with Map and Universal we eloquently unite physical and digital worlds to enhance lives across service, product, architecture and commerce. We have a growing responsibility to ensure our work is created with a conscious approach and inspires hope. To make a positive impact on society and the environment through our ideas.
