A quick introduction
My work helps people and organisations create better products, services and spaces.
The work I do is build and coach design teams for agencies and product companies. The teams are all centered on people, on humans. Both as creators and as receivers of the work created by the teams.
I use design as a problem solving tool, and hands-on research as a means to finding the answers that matter.
My beliefs are that people come first and that clarity and simplicity are the only "rules" you should follow. In terms of professional roots, mine are firmly planted in the world of User Experience design.
I advise senior-level leaders on Design and User Experience Strategy, and build teams for them that successfully, collaboratively and consistently deliver the results they need. When possible I bring them, their teams, audiences and clients together in live projects to explore how and why a better way of working matters and how they can all contribute to it and benefit from it. At the moment I work mainly across Europe and in Hong Kong.
