London based UX design & research specialist

I am a thoroughly experienced specialist in the full User-Centred Design lifecycle, with lead roles in UX design, user research, and product delivery. My recent clients are from sectors including telecoms, retail, finance, media, and government.

What I can do for you:

  • Give you great user-focused designs for desktop, mobile, and tablet platforms
  • Commission and manage your user research internally or with vendors
  • Deliver your product on time and within budget

I have had lead roles in over 55 projects spanning 13 years. Recent clients include Vodafone Global, UK Cabinet Office, VISA, Directgov, eBay, Orange, lloydstsb.com, BP.com, Guardian Media Group, learndirect, and Ofcom.

The confidence in my ability to provide this customer-focused user experience input comes from the validation I receive through the delivery of successful multi-vendor, multi-channel retail projects, for leading brands focused on customer retention and behaviour change.
