I'm a senior designer who connects the dots between product systems and users.

I've worked across the product lifecycle designing web, app, and wearable experiences. One thread I've carried through all of my roles is a passion for user onboarding, and I've defined best practices for it that have been shared in presentations, workshops, and writings. When I'm not designing or presenting, you can find me painting and scuba diving.

Talks and workshops

Workshop: "Designing a user onboarding compass." Half- and full-day versions of this workshop have been led across the world at events such as IxDA Sydney, UX London, UX Days Seoul, and UX Days Tokyo.

Presentation: "User onboarding for the long run." At lengths from 20 to 60 minutes, this talk has been presented at leading industry conferences such as UX London, An Event Apart, UX Days Seoul, and UX Days Tokyo.

Presentation: "New users matter too!." Presented at UX Australia, SXSW, Webdagene, An Event Apart, and many more.

Send me a message if you have a question about a talk, workshop, or other enquiry.
