Product designer & developer
I use participatory design to prototype and build the digital tools to enable 21st century public services. At the moment, I’m building a new community of practice for technology and software engineering.
I designed and implemented a new end-to-end experience for new volunteers, including facilitating stakeholder workshops, conducting user research and managing agency relationships.
I built working HTML/CSS prototypes, wrote discussion guides, conducted user interviews and synthesised findings for a new digital service going through a discovery phase.
I prepared HMRC’s digital infrastructure for its largest annual traffic spike—the self-assessment tax deadline. I also conducted trained a cohort of apprentices to become developers and cloud engineers.
I mentored and trained dozens of student journalists for one of the UK’s most awarded student media collectives.
Freelance UX designer & developer
I use an agile, lean approach to build products ranging from new websites for large city investment firms to MVPs for small health start-ups.
Mentoring and coaching
I’ve taught four CodeFirst:Girls courses and I’m a regular Codebar coach. I care deeply about bringing under-represented people into tech.
I treat digital products as part of an end-to-end service composed of teams, processes, policies and tools.
At the moment I work mainly with React, Node and Rails, but I’m open to learning any and all new tech.
I’ve lead small and large agile teams, and I’m an experienced scrum facilitator.
