I start every project with a beginner's mindset, driven by genuine curiosity. I step into people's shoes (not their toes) to understand their own experience, pain points, needs and aspirations. I believe this approach can give brands the opportunity to surprise and delight.
Therefore, bringing together the disciplines of branding, design thinking and emerging technology helps me solve problems for clients, and connect brands with people on a deeper level.

Head of Production EMEA
My experience in design and creative spans over 20 years. During this time I have worked with large agency groups, boutique studios, client-side and big tech incumbents. The projects had a strong design focus and went from brand experience and communication to UX and UI. My client portfolio includes brands from all major industry groups, such as technology, healthcare, luxury, and FMCG.
I also hold a Master's degree in branding, a Bachelor's in industrial design, and several certificates in interaction design and immersive technology disciplines.
