I'm a multidisciplinary designer with a keen interest in humanising complex technology to deliver products and services that excite, disrupt and exceed.

I am a dynamic and creative product designer with experience working with international brands, in a fast paced collaborative environment. I turn visions into concepts and translate those concepts into designs that illustrate simplicity despite system complexity. As a hands on individual I apply strategic thinking to deliver end-to-end user experience solutions with a focus on user needs and business goals directly responsible for delivering all aspects of design, from identifying and defining customer needs to delivering concepts and prototypes to UI specifications for engineering.

My keen interest in the technology has also led me to learn front-end development languages such as HTML, CSS, SASS, Javascript and PHP, and frameworks such as Vue JS and Angular. I use this knowledge to not only design concepts into high fidelity prototypes but also to effectively communicate intent between between technical and design teams.
