Hi! I’m a Swiss-Brit Product and UX Designer with a background in startups and agency design.I am happiest working in multidisciplinary teams and I am hugely passionate about bringing design strategy to the top table. My current role spans product strategy, user research and interaction design. I also enjoy speaking and writing about my field with the ultimate aim of encouraging diversity in Design. Alongside this, I run and organise the Edinburgh CreativeMornings chapter to showcase our city’s incredible creative talent.
