About Me

For the past ten years I’ve been doing my bit to rid the world of clunky, unfriendly interactions.

From waging a one man war against scrolljacking to advocating for user-centred design in a boardroom full of terrifying executives, my one goal is to make technology seamless, inviting, and beautiful to use.

I’m also interested in generative and electronic music, and have a number of projects on the go exploring different ways of using technology in the creative process. Chief amongst these is Field Waves, an original music project augmenting classical piano with generative electronica for live solo shows.

My Skills

Whenever I’m asked to describe my skills I always end up drawing this graph:

My favourite space to play is somewhere inbetween research and wireframing – using data and validated learnings to come up with interesting new ideas and creative solutions to problems.

I am commensurate enough in research, concepting, wireframing and testing to comfortably lead these kinds of projects and get great results – when it comes further along the process to UI and Development I will often start to rely more on collaboration with specialists in these fields to continue the high quality of the design.
