About me
I’ve been making digital things since 2001. I have helped launch hardware startups, lead projects for global brands, built and launched products for innovative companies and collaborated with some of the most talented people in the industry. I love working with capable teams of designers and engineers and find crafting an elegant product incredibly rewarding. I have in-depth knowledge of mobile platforms, especially iOS, but have a general passion for all technology and love tinkering, playing and prototyping with anything that comes to hand. Coming from a traditional design background, and with a career history spanning award winning digital design, moving image, flash animation and video editing, I feel at one working with a strong design team. I’m comfortable leaning in and getting involved in the design process, but also sitting back and help the designers craft a beautiful product.

  • Nike+ FuelFest
    Nike+ FuelFestTo kick off the Games in London, Nike wanted to stage a first-of-its-kind event that demonstrated the power of Nike Fuel. With NIKE+ FUELFEST we transformed a gig into a game and harnessed the energy of a night out, showing London’s young, urban audience that when it comes to Nike Fuel, everything counts. Our real-time data visualization at Battersea Power Station, framed as a friendly competition between boys and girls, encouraged the crowd to reach beyond their limits. 4,000 guests moved to t
  • Nike+ FuelBand
    Nike+ FuelBandThere has never been a way to measure activity. Nike wanted to change that. They came to us with an idea: a device that tracks your daily activity and a common, universal metric called Fuel for every active body out there, no matter who you are or what you do. They asked us to design the entire user experience. Using FuelBand is effortless: set your goal, and get from red to green. If you meet your goal, animations celebrate your performance. Hit your goal consistently and Fuelie shows up to ch
