About me

I am a friendly, empathetic, and approachable person, who enjoys the challenges of helping businesses meet their goals whilst aligning with their users’ needs and expectations.

I have over 24 years of experience working across different design disciplines in a variety of industries both B2B and B2C. I have worked in both private and public sectors, helping global giants, defining start-ups, helping mid-sized businesses achieve an ambition, or working to help drive efficiencies for government departments.

I come from the U.K but am based in Locarno, Switzerland. I am currently working for EPAM as Chief Usability Engineer (UX Lead/Senior Service Designer), and have been working on projects for them at UBS for over a year. Previously I was contracting at Swiss RE.

I am happy to talk with anyone about potential projects they feel I may be able to bring value to, be it permanent, short, or long-term contracts.
