The abbreviated story
After graduating in 2015 from Massey University with a degree in Industrial design (Hons); I worked in NZ as a designer for two years before completing the classic right of passage of moving to London. I have spent the last three years in London working as a UX designer, travelling, running a marathon and explaining how puff pastry does make a superior pie.
My core skill set is in user experience design, user research, implementing design thinking into business workshops and facilitating persona building workshops.
I solve problems by using empathy and courage to create meaningful design solutions
So, why courage?
You have to be brave to ask the questions that don't always have an easy answer
You need to understand when to dare to be bold, and know when it is valiant to hold back and listen
You must take opportunities to venture into the unknown
A little less controversial, but to keep consistency. Why do I think empathy?
You have to listen to grow your affinity with the problem
You need to build rapport so you can learn and become aware of burdens
You must understand the foreign, and identify your naivety.
