I'm currently lead product designer at Babylon Health, designing services built on AI and machine learning. Our goal is to create an accessible and affordable health service for everyone. Before that I was head of design for a large UK government department and had various design roles for not-for-profit organisations.

I care deeply about making user-centred, accessible products and services. My design process revolves around using research and prototypes to drive product iteration. My experience of front-end development helps me prototype in code. I believe in designing as a team, harnessing others perspectives and information to create a better product for people.


I occasionally get time to photograph landscapes. It'll never pay the bills but landscape photography is a good way to chill out and see the world.
