ABOUT

User Experience Consultant and Product Designer who actually gets things done

 

FINTECH • USER EXPERIENCE DESIGN • USER INTERFACE DESIGN • VISUAL DESIGN • MICRO ANIMATIONS • DESIGN SYSTEMS • DATA VISUALISATION • USER RESEARCH • PROTOTYPING • WEB AND MOBILE APPS

 

Based in London, I am specialised in making complex products simple and beautiful. I work seamlessly embedded in an agile software development team from inception to delivery. I collaborate with clients, stakeholders, product owners and developers.

Currently at Publicis Sapient – I previously worked for EY, HSBC, NatWest Markets, Liberty Global, Vodafone, several agencies and consultancies and a couple of global banks and Fintech startups.

I am capable of seeing the high-level vision and big picture (business goals + what customers want) while also being able to roll up my sleeves and dive into design details and work autonomously. Interpersonal skills: empathy, social awareness, emotional intelligence, self-management and relationship-management.
