Fast and iterative processes, but not ones that compromise quality; simple and reductive experiences, that do not trade-off delight; motion as re-inforcement but not at the cost of subtlety.


I specialise in understanding how to map user problems to product ideas within strategic organizational contexts all whilst facilitating this with strong visualisations and interesting interaction design
