Experienced design leader, designing and shipping web, mobile & desktop applications for developers and enterprise products.

My skillset includes managing design and UI teams, product strategy and discovery, user research, rapid prototyping & validation, user interface design and frontend HTML/CSS. Here are the tools I use.

In the past I have built and shipped products from scratch, designing the UX, writing production-ready code and running marketing and growth campaigns. Check out my portfolio or GitHub for examples of my work, products I've built and code I've written.

I take a lean agile approach to product design, using research and data to help guide design decisions early in the process, continuously validating assumptions & iterating.

I have a Masters in Multi-Disciplinary Design from University of Ulster Belfast and am currently Product Design Manager at Mesosphere in San Francisco, building a data center operating system for large enterprise companies. Previously I have led design and frontend teams at Mailgun by Rackspace, Kareo and Runnable, was Founder of Lookaly and created HTML Email and Codeshare.
