About

creative.organised.motivated.

Having graduated from De Montfort University (1998) with a BA in Multimedia Design, I now have more than a 16 years worth of experience as a digital creative.

The last 3 years I’ve been Head of User Experience at Haymarket Media Group. Initially hired to run the consumer division, but in subsequent years have moulded the role and taken on both the B2B division, and Haymarket Network UX, the agency arm of Haymarket Media Group. I’ve grown the UX team, introduced a UX structure, set up process and strategy and introduced UX as a core function within HMG.

Previous to HMG, I’ve worked as a freelance UX consultant, strategist and designer on both long and short-term contracts, concentrating on User Experience methodologies, but have also linked in Digital Art Director roles, due to my wide ranging design background. These additional skills include creative consultancy, concept and page layout design, team management and project organisation.

The majority of my previous career was as spent working at News International in various design positions, including Senior Designer and Chief Designer for Times Online. Between 2007-2009 I was Head of Design for Times Online.

My last contract role was at European Directories creating the delivery of a multi-templated web platform for users in various countries around Europe, including a 5 month tenure in Amsterdam.

Prior to that I worked with Journalism.co.uk, designing the Journalism website and at JustGiving.com where I created a design strategy, new site concepts and templates, a brand style guide and a pattern library.
