Selected Work

Design Process

Designer, refiner, business strategist. Lover of simplicity, type, and white-space. I’m an experienced UX and interaction designer who’s not afraid to challenge ideas and disrupt the industry norms.

You’ll find no templates, pre-designed UI kits, or one-size-fits-all frameworks here. I research, design, and develop bespoke solutions tailored to each of my discerning client’s business needs.

I've run my own design business for 18 years, gaining a deep understanding of project management, empathetic UX practices, and an agile design process. I'm comfortable working autonomously as a studio of one, or collaboratively as part of a larger team.

I’ll talk straight, operate with complete transparency, communicate honestly, and act professionally. When you work with me, you’re talking directly to the strategist, the maker, the doer. I’ll become a valuable part of your team, fully invested in the success of your business as a reliable long-term partner.
