About Me

Professional summary

I am a product designer with over four years experience in the industry, crafting digital experiences for a wide range of companies and services. I excel at understanding problems surrounding user interactions and architecting innovative solutions that prioritise the end-user experience.

The majority of my work has been with websites, apps and online services, along with the digital assets and documents to support and promote products and companies. I also have a sound understanding of front-end development, having spent a great deal of time coding these digital experiences.

Throughout my career, I have worked with and coordinated teams both local and internationally. I am able to communicate with all the members of a team and help (or lead) them to produce the best result possible as a cohesive unit.

I also maintain an avid interest in game design, big data visualisation, digital communities and online video production.

Why I design

I have a fundamental desire to create. Over the years, I have developed the skills to create in many forms; artistically, physically & digitally through code. It is through the application of proper research, conceptual analysis, user testing, wireframing and prototyping that I am able to hone this desire, giving it reason and purpose.

I take great pride in seeing someone effortlessly achieve their goals using a product or service I have helped create. There is a certain joy that comes from solving problems people didn’t know they had. I am endlessly curious and driven by the desire to improve my designs and processes by asking why.

 

I design because I need solve problems.
