When i'm not designing

You'll find me hanging out with my 2 young daughters, cooking a new recipe (i'm currently exploring persia cuisine) or spending time reading about 20th century history and politics.

My design philosophy

Validate dirty, polish later

Most ideas we work on are either not going to work, or will need a lot of iteration. Validating quickly is important so more time is spent on design work that will make the most difference.

Communicate often, and honestly

Its important to keep all stakeholders involved at all steps in a design process so research, validation and design direction is understood as things progress.

Understand the business case

Asking how product initiatives will impact the company vision, and quarterly priorities is an important step to being autonomous and delivering maximum value.

Don’t be precious

I've learned it doesn't help to be stubborn and single minded. Being aware of everyones opinions and understanding design is collaborative is crucial to being an inclusive designer.
