Now ➜ I'm currently a Product Designer at Initial Force, where my primary focus is UX. I have been working at the intersection of Product Management and UX design, leading the initial phases of a new product.

As of late I've been particularly interested in strategic work and working with processes surrounding products and the making of them.

My sparetime is spent experimenting with digital art or out on hikes with a camera. I have an affinity for video games (I grew up with a Nintendo and played semi-professionally FPS' in my youth). Can usually be found vibing to some music, I have over 100 public playlists for you to check out. I'm always reading something.

I'm also quite interested in philosophy, mindfulness and pondering about what it means to be a human (at which I consider myself an amateur, but a constant learner).

Then ➜ I have been working across design disciplines since the late 90s, starting with graphic and web design in my late teens, to using design and social media to influence people to move back to their city of birth, designing technology solutions to make politicians paper free, innovating the hairdressing business and designing sports technology products while also designing and developing a vast number of websites as a freelancer. UX design has been the primary area of focus for the latter half of my career. I'm a Design technologist at my core, always having thrived when defining and solving problems/needs from idea to production.
