Welcome to my story

At my heart I’m a project manager, I’ve served my time as a reactive project firefighter and today enjoy leading projects of all shapes and sizes, with a passion for the planning and strategy stages. I especially love playing these roles;
Planning & leadership
Stakeholder workshops, impact plans, data mapping, specs, SoW's, workflow management, scheduling, prioritisation and strategy.
Design & accessibility
Brand ambassador, wireframes, user journeys, accessibility audits and testing, prototypes, design testing.
Content & SEO
Information architecture, content strategy, keyword planning, competition analysis, copywriting, messaging, on-page.
Solutions architecture, DNS & domain management, server admin, process improvement, training, data, reporting.
I love using a range of specialist tools, and am an ambassador for embracing new tools and building these into team workflows. Sketch App is one of my favourites, I have first hand experience of the significant benefits that this lightweight UI design tool can bring to digital projects.
I build complex sitemaps, hi-fidelity wireframes, and engaging user personas and journeys using Sketch, and also enjoy using Sketch Cloud to present ideas, concepts and materials to teams and stakeholders.
I’m highly motivated and passionate about my work, I love to lead fun and creative projects but also stay positive and keep my energy levels high when firefighting less fun or creative projects, most of the time!
I love being part of teams that push boundaries and provide innovative approaches to overcome complex challenges. I get excited about R&D projects and trying new things.
I enjoy the design process and always have a subjective opinion I’m happy to share. I love working with exceptional creatives who get excited about photography, typography, animation and bells-and-whistles.
Quality & standards
I’m not adverse to the odd quick fix solution but always aim for the highest quality and I set high standards. I love to learn along the way and to achieve great results.
