HELLO :)

I’M A PRODUCT DESIGNER WHO LIKES TO BUILD PRODUCTS WITH GREAT TEAMS FOR WORLD CLASS COMPANIES.



I FOCUS ON PRODUCTS & SERVICES WHERE PHYSICAL & DIGITAL MEET.

USER RESEARCH IS AN ESSENTIAL COMPONENT TO any design process.

I’VE BEEN LUCKY ENOUGH TO CONDUCT RESEARCH IN SOME INTERESTING CONTEXTS; IN-CAR DRIVE-ALONGS IN TEXAS, SHADOWING HORSE TRAINERS IN IRELAND, INTERVIEWING COPD PATIENTS IN DENMARK AND UNDERSTANDING CHILDREN’S LEARNING IN CHINA.

“YOU DON’T REALLY UNDERSTAND AN EXPERINCE UNTIL YOU’VE EXPERIENCED IT”

I CODE JUST BADLY ENOUGH TO CAUSE TROUBLE; PROTOTYPING CONNECTED DEVICES AND designing unique interactions.



I CAN’T TALK ABOUT MOST OF THE WORK I DO, BUT HERE’S a few projects I can show:

Ikea Trådfri (2017)
 - Bringing smart lighting to everyone
AUDI ENTERTAINMENT MOBILE (2015)
 - In-car REAR SEAT ENTERTAINMENT
GE Design Langauge System (2014)
 - design system for GE's portfolio
BLOWAWAY (2004)
 - A physical, interactive, gender-neutral game

I regularly teach and speak at events, and am open to invitations.

Upcoming:

Speaking about Smart Home at IXDA Munich
Workshop: Ergonomics for Interaction Designers at Interaction18 in Lyon
