About

I draw words and talk pictures

 

My first brush with UX was at university, when I struggled designing complex GUIs as a scientific developer.

I hold a BSc in Natural Sciences and an MSc in Bioinformatics from Imperial College, so, at heart, I am a scientist. I have learnt illustration and visual design at Bournemouth College of Arts and UAL. In Interaction Design I found the intersection between analysis, design and technology.

I became a UX Designer via being embedded in design teams as a front-end Developer for Thoughtworks. After almost 3 years in UX, I became a freelancer, as it allowed me to carefully curate my projects within the sustainability and ethical tech sectors. This year I spent 6 months embedded in the Design Team at Amnesty International London and contracted with a green energy start-up.

Iā€™m also a lead instructor at General Assembly, London teaching Visual Design for UX.

In my free time I draw and I speak and scribe at events about UX, visual communication and comics.
