How I work

As a UX Research and Designer with 4 years of experience assisting the planning, production and critique of interactive spaces. I design through collaboration when reimagining physical and digital spaces. Talk to me about biomimicry or what comic books to read these days. Check out some case studies, or read on to learn more about how I work.

I extensively use design research to put the process, usability and emotional appeal first.
