I’m a researcher, facilitator, and designer. I do a range of freelance, agency and academic research with government, commercial and charity clients. I’m passionate about putting users at the core of my work, exploring new methods and approaches to fit the brief. I bring processes and approaches grounded in ethics, equitable design, responsible technology, and environmental sustainability. I am a passionate mentor, supervisor and reflexive practitioner. I am excited to deploy the best methods and tools that put users at the heart of services and help organisations get unstuck.

A selection of services I offer

  • User research
  • Fair and sustainable futures workshops
  • Service design
  • Workshop facilitation 
  • Organisational Strategy
  • Game design
