Education and Passion

Described by Anglia Ruskin University as “intellectually inventive, visually engaging” with "high order of creative thought and technical ingenuity.” My confident and enthusiastic personality make me a good team player. I am a British (double nationality) UX Designer operating in the Cambridgeshire and London area with at least 10 years experience in UX Design, Graphic Design and Web Design. What drives me about UX Design is creating useful, usable and desirable products that add value to society and enable users to perform tasks that are essential to them. But also to work as part of an engaged team that wishes to drive efficiency but also emotion into everyday processes and technology. The kind of work I love to do is creating innovative solutions, pushing the boundaries through design thinking.
