Approach

I'm passionate about creating well-designed, innovative experiences, life-long learning and exploring new challenges.

I blend my deep understanding of technology and empathy for the needs of others with a proactive, pragmatic and no-nonsense approach.

I’m at my best when working on challenging projects. Whether as part of a team or independently, I always strive to simplify, avoid jargon and clearly articulate my opinions.

I care about the small details and I'm a perfectionist at heart. However, through experience I understand there's a balance to be struck when trying to get things done in a fast-paced environment.

I'm a strong believer in always giving my best efforts and bring this attitude into each new project I undertake.
