More about me
With a digital career starting in 2003, I've helped clients unlock new opportunities through good old-fashioned user-centred design. I draw from a wealth of knowledge and methodologies in user experience, interaction design, UX strategy, and user interface design to help create world class digital products and services.
Away from work I ride bikes up on the South Downs and live by the seaside where I'm husband to a wonderful wife and father to two incredible girls. I'm Canadian by birth, English by heritage, and I like making my kids' lunches a bit more fun.
