University of Leeds graduate with a first-class degree and a research and leadership scholarship.
After leaving Burnley for Spain, I’m now based in Madrid where I lead the design team at Erretres. I have past experience envisioning the future of Sky’s customer user experience and ecosystem within their digital media team, as well as a stint working in Elmwood’s Leeds office. Whilst studying design at the University of Leeds, I also worked on a project with the Design Council to rebrand one of the UK’s top arts charities.
These days I enjoy designing and building experiences across both all kinds of media, as well as exploring a love for typography. In my spare time I’m partial to a spot of baking or travelling, always with a motivation to further my language skills. I’m also an avid reader and writer, the latter of which I end up doing quite regularly as I share my adventures on my blog or updating the code of this very website.
