Designer meets Storyteller
I spent a decade designing environments and furniture.
I’ve spent another one creating and performing comedy, and teaching people how to work in teams and present their ideas.
Now I’m designing user experiences.
Designing for users; creating for audiences? The process is about the same:
- Identify an opportunity
- Delve into it
- Come up with your take on it
- Put your ideas across
- Listen to the response
- Refine it until it works
- Remain calm
I always love looking at the big picture, and then diving down into the details, and then doing it again.

Presenting and Performing
I'm a presenter, trainer, and until recently a comedian. I even combine them all to satirize motivational speaking ... and UX.
