Work

I am a Design Lead at New Zealand's quintessential website, Trade Me, where I lead the Design System and the central design team. A professional UX designer since 2004, I have both in-house and agency experience. 

Providing coaching in creativity and creative problem solving is an essential part of my work, including facilitation of Design Thinking workshops.
