About me

I have studied design and interaction in London at CSM and worked at ustwo after graduating. On my role as a designer and developer I built websites for American Express, Barclays, Google and Sony, as well some internal products.

In 2014 I switched from working at this agency to take a product design role at Thread, a Y-Combinator 2012 startup re-inventing how people shop online.

I moved to Tokyo in 2015 where I started developing for iOS and running design sprints with local start ups. I moved back to London in 2017, but I am keeping this Canvas profile to maintain the connection with other Tokyo creatives.
