About me
As far as I can remember I've always been fascinated by technology: from taking apart the remote control (and getting my ass whooped), to creating glittery MySpace covers, to running my own internet network in high-school. After dropping out of Computer Science at the age of 19, I spent all my savings on books and started teaching myself design. Fast forward more than a decade, I'm now a Lead Product Designer, working with clients across the globe to build successful products and happy teams.

After spending my last 5 years in London, I've recently relocated to a small village in the heart of Transylvania, where I live with my fiancee and our two dogs.
Freelancing — 2017-Present
For the last few years I've been freelancing with start-ups and established organisations, helping them grow their business through a mix of research & design. My list of clients include GetYourGuide, Instrumentl (YCombinator '16), Burberry, Obby and more.

Farfetch — 2016-2017
Previously, I was a Lead Designer on the Farfetch mobile team. Amongst other things, I worked on improving discovery, built a close partnership with Apple, established a UX documentation process and helped the team transition to a cross-platform design discipline.

JustEat — 2015-2016
In 2015 I joined JustEat as a UI/UX Designer. During my time there, we opened the Bristol office and grew the team from 5 to more than 20 designers. Part of my role was to increase conversion for new customers and establish the right processes to support our growth: bi-weekly testing, design critique and more.

Pollen — 2014-2015
Pollen was a young social media platform for content creators. I joined them as a Lead Product Designer to ship the MVP and create an income stream by adding key features to support partnerships. During my time there we closed a $2.5 mil seed round and got to 120K users in 3 months. The company was acquired in 2016.

Other — 2008-2014
The first few years of my career were spent working with start-ups and design studios. I helped clients like Adobe, ING & Microsoft ship things across Web, iOS and Android.
