About me

Freelance Product Designer with a keen interest in creative thinking and "the human code". Previous experiences have allowed me to practice various forms of design, from garment design and construction, graphic design (branding and artworks) and product design (Ui/Ux). My most recent role as Product Manager allowed me oversee and connect the dots between the various teams (and worlds) that bring a product to life, in turn strengthening my skills as a product designer. I work across all disciplines of digital design from user research and gathering user insights to UX and service design to sketching, prototyping and UI design. With a passion for problem solving and using user centric methodologies I help my clients visualise and deliver ideas which they can validate and feel confident about.
