I’m a Product Designer with experience working in-house at Disney, Pottermore, Sony PlayStation and D.C. Thompson’s Findmypast. I love to problem-solve, make things look beautiful and improve user experiences. I also love to read, write, play videogames and watch movies. When there’s time I enjoy a bit of drawing too.
After getting my A-Levels in English, Media Studies and Art I went to Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, where I completed a foundation diploma in Fine Art Moving Image. I enrolled at Sussex University to complete a BA in English Literature and Media Studies. My dissertation was based on violence in videogames, magic realism in the works of Salman Rushdie, and the history of pornography in Japanese Animation.
I left Disney the following year to become the first in-house designer at Pottermore, an online reading experience with new writing from J.K. Rowling based on the Harry Potter series. In 2014 I was hired by Sony Interactive Entertainment where I created, managed and delivered creative content for playstation.com.
In 2017 I began working as a Product Designer at D.C. Thompson’s family history website Findmypast, where I specialised in product design. Today I continue to learn as a product designer at DoctorLink, a new and sophisticated online tool being created and managed by a team of healthcare professionals.
