CV

Profile

I spent my formative years surrounded by technology, and quickly developed a passion for creating natural, intuitive and creative digital experiences. I rapidly honed this into a 12+ year career in creating outstanding solutions across web, apps, games and virtual + augmented reality.

I founded my own digital design + development consultancy in 2014, where my existing talent for efficiently turning research, design and development into the creation of end-to-end product solutions was married with a fast growing understanding of business management, along with a propensity to speak to clients in a language they would understand.

Throughout the years, I have worked with and enjoyed the company of some wonderful companies + brands, and I have worked on dozens of fantastic projects, including a few award winners and a world first.

Today, as the pace of technology innovation continues to accelerate, I maintain my work at the forefront of user experience, ensuring the experiences I create are second to none.
