I've been designing professionally since 2005, working at agencies and organisations in London, Brighton, and beyond.
During my time at Makemedia (2009 - 2017) I was lucky enough to work with some of the world's leading organisations in data intelligence, publishing, engineering, and creative events. As Director of Design & UX I was also responsible for improving design practice at the studio, while supporting and mentoring a growing design team.
I've worked on large-scale projects spanning months and years, but also undertaken shorter engagements. I'm happy to share the stories, outcomes, and outputs of these projects through my portfolio and in person. You can see my CV and recommendations on LinkedIn.

As a design manager I've worked both agency and client-side to foster healthy environments for great design to happen. I enjoy this aspect of my work and actively look for opportunities to support teams where I can.
I value the strong communication skills required to build trust and a shared vision.
I'm constantly curious about better ways to work and improve the design process.
