Over 30 years in design and communications

Today’s workload is primarily digital. I’m a hands-on managerial product designer, adept at leading research, strategy and design for international clients.

Commonly, I am directing a team of talented user experience specialists, delivering everything from workshops and field research through to strategy presentations, prototypes and functional specifications.

Over the years I have worked at boutique agencies as well as the big guns. I have been seconded within the WPP group to provide specialist insight and creative direction. I’ve also done a good amount of contracting, providing team management, research, strategy and design.

Additionally I have worked in lighting design, print publishing, promotions and even had a colourful time as a radio presenter in the last millennium.

Back to the present and I’m enjoying crafting and honing ideas that UX, tech and creative teams bring to the table. We take pride in creating successful insight-led designs that are driven through research, prototyping and iteration. A lot of our work is designed to meet very specific and measurable KPIs. It also spans geographic and cultural boundaries, adding challenges and interest which keeps me in an industry I continue to enjoy.

When not earning a crust, you can often find me on the beach at home in Ramsgate or exploring the mountainous terrain around our place in Andalusia.

Clients and brands

I have been very fortunate to work with some great clients and their brands.
