Bio

With experience in agile delivery, research, design and managing digital services, I work with users and policy teams, to educate the value of user-centred design and development across government.

I build communities which represent and involve inclusive, diverse talent and experience, from all walks of life, bridging the gaps between policy, design and agile digital service delivery.

I work with teams to encourage new ideas, motivating them to embrace digital innovation and disruptive thinking in policy development; I am extremely passionate about creating simple yet meaningful, and effective, services and products.

Having achieved a First Class Honours in Design Management, I have worked in various companies, specialising in various areas in design, such as architecture, product and graphics.
I also co-run a company, designing furniture and bespoke kitchens.
I would love the opportunity to share my knowledge and most importantly, help younger generations to understand the impact and importance of design in everyday life.
