It's nice to meet you

We should talk

About

I am a freelance digital product specialist, who creates workable solutions and strategy for businesses and agencies. Most recently, I have worked as Digital Manager (Product Owner) for one of the world's largest travel rewards programmes, working alongside some of the biggest brands in the industry.

Working with emergent technology, I deliver products and innovative solutions alongside incredibly talented designers and developers.

I love good design, well thought out type, photography and cats, and fancy myself an ice-cream connoisseur and amateur chef.

Companies I've worked with

Personal

When I was a child, I used to sit in the spare bedroom of my Grandma's house and copy out sections of the newspaper by hand – the headlines, the TV listings, the comics – into a folded A5 newsletter, and try to sell them to my parents, aunties, uncles and cousins.

I was never very good at drawing, but have always had an eye for good design and good copy. When I was at school I started coding HTML to build flashy websites on Geocities using only the finest scrolling GIFs and flashy backgrounds. By college I had picked up my passion for photography, and this led me to explore creating with digital technologies on platforms such as websites, photography, video, graphics and print publications.

When I'm not at work, I'm out and about with my (well-loved) Mamiya 645 or at home putting together hand-bound books. On the weekends you'll usually find me in the kitchen, flicking through a selection from my growing cookbook collection with something new cooking in the oven.
