About

I wasn't always a designer.

It was as an economist that I realised the power of design. 

While focusing on social barriers to equality, I found that although access to technology is often the crux to improvements in quality of life. But it means nothing if humans can’t navigate the endless pools of information effectively. 

It’s through creating usable, accessible and beautiful products that I hope to simplify people’s lives, and do my bit for the greater good. 

My journey so far has taken me to work as a UX designer for NHS Digital and the National Careers Service, as well as some branding and web development projects. Along the way, I've run design sprints for 40+ people at Leeds Digital Festival, and I've learnt how to code.

Out of the office you’ll find me outdoors, reading a book, taking photos or exploring a new country (when there's not a pandemic) ✈️
