Over the last 8 years I’ve built user-centric digital products and services in sectors such as healthcare, media, hospitality, music, sport and education.
I have wide-ranging experience creating digital products inside cross-discipline teams, covering agile/lean working practices, rapid prototyping, user research, automated testing/analysis, performance, accessibility, security, usability/UX, documentation, styleguide creation, analytics, DevOps, support and open source.
I’m particularly interested in how user experience shapes the business/consumer relationship. Through this I’ve developed a clear sense of what it takes to make a digital product people trust and want to use.
