About me

I’m a hybrid designer, strategist and facilitator who thrives on working across projects, from research, development and strategy to designing, building, testing and implementing products and services.  I started my career in creative roles, working in digital design and animation. I now work with clients applying design thinking and digital processes to develop working solutions that answer real human needs. An eternal optimist, I believe in creativity and the power of play to transform how we work and connect. For me, lifelong learning is at the heart of developing working cultures and communities that can thrive in a future of constant change.
