Digital product and experience design

I've spent 15 years helping businesses tap into new markets or unlock value in existing ones through hands-on digital product design, UX and research.

I have a solid grasp of design processes and tools - and when to use them.

Design strategy and value innovation

A robust design strategy looks to solve the right problems at the right time, with an optimally designed product.

I help plan and execute strategies which do this as effectively as possible.

Leading design teams with business confidence

In former roles as Director of Design & UX and Head of Design, I spent over a decade helping nurture talent and build positive design culture.

I offer a range of leadership services and interim design management.

Events, content and community

I'm co-organiser of the UK's biggest annual UX BarCamp, contributor to UX Brighton, and mentor designers of all experience levels.

An occasional speaker, I've also written for leading industry publications.
