About Me

“To improve is to change; to be perfect is to change often.”

Winston Churchill
Responsive image

I'm a UX designer from Newcastle upon Tyne, currently working in the online gaming industry in Gibraltar.

I'm happy to call Gibraltar my home for the last three years but previous to this, I worked as a web designer in the banking industry for over 5 years.

I love researching, analysing, prototyping and designing interfaces to improve user journeys and experiences. My goal is always user centred design focused to create things that just work.

My UX process follows the following key phases: strategy, research, design and production.

In my spare time you’ll find me running, reading or bloging about travels and UX topics.
