I'm a designer and researcher tackling business challenges through a human-centred approach. I have +7 years of experience creating digital products across various industries, in-house and as a consultant.
I have a background in UX Design, passion for user research and an understanding of business pragmatism. My specialty is bridging the gap between people's needs and business drivers to create solutions that drive value for customers and organisations.
I specialise in qualitative discovery research, but have experience with a wide range of research methods throughout the product or service life cycle- from ethnographic research to surveys, and remote usability testing.
Why mixing methods? - Selecting the right combination of research methods to tackle the challenge at hand results in well rounded customer understanding, ultimately leading to more confident strategic decision making.
"Making sense of chaos" - Finding connections, filtering and prioritising insights is perhaps the most valuable moment of all.
I translate raw research data into tangible artefacts like design principles, diagrams, customer journeys, stories, mockups or prototypes. These help decipher and identify the most critical pieces of information and are powerful tools to align stakeholders, support decision making and communicate insights to the wider organisation.
I work side by side with business owners, designers, developers and data analysts to bring new products, services or features to market, as well as to iterate and improve existing ones.
My focus lays in conceptualising solutions grounded in research findings, and iteratively crafting detailed interactions and experiences.
