Bio

Originally from Canada, I am an experienced UX professional with experience working in North America, Europe and Australasia. 

 

I was fortunate enough to work in the gaming industry as a UX Lead during my time at UbiSoft and Electric Arts where I developed key XBOX360 and Playstation games such as NBA, FIFA, Deadspace 2.  Since then I have worked in Germany & Australia before finally landing on the shores of New Zealand. 

 

Over the years I have worked on different projects including building augmented reality, SaaS design for mobile & desktop and interactive websites. I have honed in on my skills as a UX Lead and my core skills lie in: 

  • Product Strategy 
  • UX Research 
  • UX / UI Design 
  • Workshops 
  • Design Process 
  • Leading UX Teams 

I have now gone out on my own and I'm open to freelance and contract opportunities.
