A committed evangelist for UX, I am able to develop and run UX strategies within organisations, bringing stakeholders with me and effecting change.
An inveterate problem solver, I aim to take on board all aspects of a given scenario to produce solutions that inspire user confidence, reduce error and increase goal completion rates.
Training people to use design thinking since 2003, I enjoy managing and mentoring others on their own professional journey, as I continue mine.
Experience in the fields of education, local government and the private sector means that I am able to promote my ideas while being mature enough to incorporate changing priorities from other stakeholders at all stages of design and production.
Physical product development for myself and third parties, running a series of design workshops at London's Barbican, joining a startup accelerator with my wife. Oh, and renovating a cottage in North Norfolk!
Highlights include leading the Design & Tecnology department of a South London school with Technology College Status, introducing new Product Design courses at GCSE and A-Level, being invited to the Royal Academy of Engineering awards dinner for my part in inspiring young girls to become engineers, and volunteering with a charity in Cambodia for four months.
BSc(Hons) Product Design, Brunel University - focused on environmental design & cognitive ergonomics. Spent time living and working in Milan and Berlin - I can speak Italian, but have to admit that I'm a little rusty!
