About

I'm a lead designer based in Toronto, Canada, originally from Dorset, UK. My philosophy towards design is thoughtful and user-led, rooted in research and informed by context. The result is elegant and impactful design that stands the test of time.

Currently, I am immersed in the fast-paced world of fintech start-ups, as the Lead Designer at NorthOne, a digital bank account for small business and freelancers. My focus is on building an amazing design team, delivering a world-class banking solution, and scaling our design system.

My agency background was spent in London at Wired Canvas, working directly with arts and non-profit clients. I honed my problem-solving skills, and led design on an enormous variety of complex projects over a decade.

When I'm not designing, I enjoy reading, cooking, photography, travel and live music.

I am not currently accepting freelance clients.
