About

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.

Photography

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.
