About Me

ABOUT ME

Why UX?

Our lives consist of interactions; with processes, people, technology, and everything in between - we are always having new experiences as the world changes around us.

This is why I was drawn to UX design; there will always be a need for these experiences to be improved, and in doing this we can be responsible for having a huge impact on people's quality of life; both individually and across wider communities.

I recently completed a postgraduate Masters in User Experience  at Loughborough University, receiving a Distinction for my work. I am now looking for role in a fast paced, creative environment where I can learn and improve myself as a designer.

Born in November 1993, I've always been a creative person with a keen interest in understanding how things work. After getting my degree in Industrial Design and Technology I then moved into User Experience via a postgrad Masters - tackling a variety of briefs & problems through exciting mobile, web and service design solutions.
