Lead User Experience & Product DesignerLondon, United Kingdom
About me
I design digital products with measurable value, by applying design thinking methodologies. I love taking complex problems and creating simple, intuitive solutions by uncovering user needs and balancing these with business objectives. With seven years of experience in product design and strategy, I seek roles that will allow me to shape the products I work on as well as the teams, processes and cultures that create them. My personal toolkit includes: product strategy, user research & testing, and product design.

Work history
    Lead User Experience Designer
    London, United KingdomFull Time
    I lead multiple projects concurrently, across a range of clients and new business opportunities. Collaborating with researchers, strategists, designers and developers to deliver award winning user experiences that are grounded and directly mapped to both business and user requirements. I am involved in the setup and planning of multi-phase projects, including planning detailed discovery & definition phases with complex research activities and multiple steak-holders. I create UX & product strategies that are grounded in research and data. Working closely with internal teams as well as with research provided by clients or 3rd parties. I create and deliver presentations to high level stakeholders and C-level client teams as well as facilitating workshops and co-creation sessions with participants from a range of backgrounds. I lead multi-disciplinary teams to create rich prototypes using a variety of rapid-prototyping tools and approaches. I am comfortable sketching, using whiteboards, paper prototyping, creating low & high fidelity static prototypes as well as polished interactive prototypes that look & behave like a finished product. I work closely with other members of the UX and Design team and have been responsible for recruiting, interviewing and hiring UX Designers. I work closely with collaborative teams, mentoring and sharing my skills with junior members of the team or those who want to learn. I am also learning from everyone around me, always.
