Hello! I am a designer, writer, and mentor.

Design is about using critical thinking and imagination to solve real problems. I aim to bring values of integrity, economy, and clarity to every project.

Resume

Education & Training

I graduated with a BA (Hons, First Class) and an MA from the University of Manchester (UK), before completing my PhD on the philosophy of justice in 2013. The full text is available for free under the Open Access scheme.

In 2016, I chose to switch to a full-time career in design. I took mentor-led courses in design fundamentals, including branding, typography, and UX design. I also completed the highly-regarded Graphic Designer qualification with Shillington College in 2017.

Employment

Since 2016, I have worked for Designlab as a designer and content writer. I was promoted to Editor in 2018, and also work as a mentor for the company's Design 101 and UX Academy programs when time permits.

During my time at university, I served as an administrator and graduate teaching assistant. I then spent three years at University College London, where I project-managed a number of major government and charity healthcare research grants.

Other Skills

I volunteered as a community musician for ten years, as an accompanist, recitalist, and choir trainer. In that time I gained a professional performance diploma from the ABRSM, spent a year as a cathedral organ scholar in New Zealand, broadcast on national TV and radio, and had some compositions performed.

As well as competence in mainstream design software, I can also code in HTML and CSS. In my spare time, I love cycling, photography, and drawing comics.

 
 

I’m available for freelance design work.
