About Me

From an early age, I have always been fascinated by the way we design things to fit humans. From the finger grips on a hammer to the button layout on a TV remote, there are thousands of ways to make it easier for users to achieve what they want with any given object, product, or service.

That’s where I come in!

I am a keen advocate of the idea that strong accessibility forms the basis of first-rate user experiences.

I also feel that the best place to solve most accessibility problems is at a Design System level: elements that are accessible make it easier to build components that are accessible which, in turn, make it easier to build interfaces that are accessible.

My background includes in-house and agency work, setting up and running end-to-end projects with cross-functional teams working in various Agile styles. I especially enjoy working with cross-functional teams for the additional insight they bring to every project.

Naturally, I have experience in most of the current industry software associated with design work in general (Adobe CC, Figma, Sketch, Axure RP, InVision, etc) as well as some experience with development tools such as Sublime Text and Github. I also have a strong working knowledge of HTML and CSS, as well as experience with XML, JavaScript, and PHP.

I tend to describe myself as a natural puzzle solver and always seek a solution that’s best for the user but that also fits within the constraints of the business and the technology available.
