Curiosity drives me to discover customer frustrations and unmet needs. I am drawn to identifying opportunities and diving deep to unlock potential. My experiences of travelling around the world on customer research trips have given me the confidence to forge a path through the many unknowns of research. I am comfortable with being uncomfortable and always dedicated to the mission.
Deeply understanding customers' needs is one of the most valuable things a business can do. Carefully conducted research creates a solid foundation to set a project up for success
From a young age, my imagination has driven me to create, build things and get hands-on. I enjoy finding problems to solve through human-centred design. Products should be simple, intuitive, and cost-effective to manufacture and scale.
I have experience working in these industries; skincare, ag-tech, sensor-tech, sport-tech, impact protection, FMCG, compostable-tech, injection moulding, health-tech, sheet metal design, autonomous vehicles, forestry, film (Avatar sci-fi film), home appliances, mechanical engineering, civil engineering, IoT, material science, clean-tech, factory design, pharmaceuticals, construction, food packaging etc.
Having the opportunity to help businesses make an impact excites me. Innovation should be fun and it will energise your business! I have been trained in tools and techniques to accelerate innovation, as well as developing some of my own. Innovation is key to building and maintaining a sustainable business.
I have been fortunate to work with open-minded businesses that have embraced these tools of Innovation. Including Head of Design roles at two of the fastest-growing companies in the UK. I have experienced the challenges of growth, which has given me a talent for anticipating risks so that they can be engaged and overcome.
