About me

 

I am a digital creative with a decades' worth of experience in designing digital products. My current job as User Experience Designer at Channel 4 Television is to provide user experience and design consultation on All 4. I have hands on experience in designing products for mobile, web and smart TV. I also have expertise in leading the product design process: defining UX and design strategy, stakeholder management, bringing teams together to workshop and co-create, producing sketches, prototypes and documentation, through to crafting presentations and speaking at industry events. I’ve spent my career managing teams of exceptionally talented people, and being part of these teams, as designer, art director, UX designer, front end developer and as a client. As a result of this experience I have a wide skill-set, broad range of experience and I understand the leadership required to make great products.
