I’m a Product Manager and UX Designer living near Cambridge, UK. I love solving complex problems and designing products and services that make peoples’ lives easier. I’m currently a Product Manager at EMBL-EBI, working on making life sciences research literature and data easier to access.
I’ve used this blog to reflect on my experiences as a researcher, designer and manager, and share what I’ve learned along the way.
I love helping to build UX communities. I’ve co-organised the Cambridge Usability Group, a local UX meetup, since 2009. This blog has taken a bit of a back seat since I got involved in co-organising conferences. I helped establish Service Design in Government in 2014 and I’ve also co-organised UX Cambridge and UX Scotland with the amazing team at Software Acumen.
I enjoy public speaking and from time to time I speak at events and run workshops.
Outside of work I’m an amateur potter – I make porcelain vessels and tableware – and a keen allotment gardener.
