About me

I started my UX career in the UK, where I worked for organisations like the BBC, Cambridge University Press, GOV.UK, as well as a range of startups.


In 2015 I moved to Melbourne, where I worked for organisations like Seek, PwC, and General Assembly (where I was lead instructor).

In late 2018 I moved to Canberra. An injury has restricted my ability to take on new work. 

Before UX, I worked mostly in education. My training and experience in how people learn and still informs my practice today.
