Experienced design leader, designing and shipping web, mobile & desktop software.

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

I have built and shipped products from scratch, designing the UX, writing code and running marketing & growth campaigns. I've also led product teams to ship complex products end-to-end. Take a look at my portfolio and GitHub for examples of my work, products I've built and code I've written.

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

I have a Masters in Multi-Disciplinary Design from University of Ulster Belfast and am currently Head of Design at OneSignal, headquartered in San Francisco, building the future of messaging. Previously I have managed design and product teams at Mesosphere, Mailgun (acquired by Rackspace), Kareo and Runnable (acquired by MuleSoft), was Founder of Lookaly and created several websites including Postdrop, HTML Email and Codeshare.
