I’m a Product & Design Lead who creates digital products & services that help people lead better lives, and use my experience to grow individuals & improve team performance.

Originally from the UK, I lived for many years in Australia before finding my way to New York.

Everyone thinks my accent is from somewhere else.

Design Life


My work spans startups, governments and the Fortune 100, both in-house and as a consultant

Reach out for a behind-the-scenes look at some of my favourite projects:

I'm also happy to talk you through a marketplace, a digital campaigning tool, a dating site and my own attempt at building a company too. I have stories.
