About Me

I have nearly 20 years experience in the digital industry. Along the way I've picked up a variety of skills and worked across a number of sectors.

I started to specialise in UX around 2007 and completed a masters in HCI in 2010. I've been engaged in UX design and research ever since; more recently on UX focussed Business Analysis.

The various sectors I've worked in include government, finance, e-commerce, travel and entertainment. I enjoy working in a team and know the importance of being able to effectively communicate ideas. I have worked on the full project life cycle, from requirements gathering, research, ideation and design as well as live service analysis.

Currently I'm volunteering with two Codeclubs teaching KS2 children coding skills. I got into this, after attending a women in tech conference, to help address the reported shortfall of people going into Tech in the UK, especially girls. Its quite fun and gives me a feeling of putting something back into the community.
