About me

I’m Instructor Lead at RED Academy where I help students become UX and UI designers through active learning.

I was Design Lead at EasyPeasy where I helped parents spend fun and educational time with their 2-5 year old to prepare them for school and beyond.

I’m part of Improvable where I entertain audiences through improvised comedy and storytelling. I like being in other people’s shoes and enjoying failure to create something great. 

I’m happy when what I make is accessible, memorable and meaningful.

My illustrations, data visualisations, brand identities, UX/UI wireframes and prototypes facilitate human-centred design approach in workshops, hackathons, lean and agile projects.

I’m one of the Creative Mornings organisers and I attend many design, startups and network events in London. 

 

Lovely people I worked with flatter me by saying…
