I empower others to discover and use their creativity.

Working with Rachel has been immensely enjoyable. She has a sharp creative eye, a deep understanding of the technical applications needed to make the ideas work, and an abundance of patience.

In my role as Design Lead I focus on empowering the team around me to do the best in their roles. 

I find Design Systems to be a way to connect designers and developers,  and encourage creativity with wider teams.

This website has been around since 2005, and each design has featured hand-drawn or painted elements. It's become an important aspect of my personal brand.

Outside of work I am rarely seen on a computer and instead like to make things by hand.

I cycle everywhere I can, I like Pilates and good food and wine. I'm a liberal Christian, an environmentalist and a vegetable gardener.
