I’m a multi-disciplined product designer with over 10 years of experience across industries from hospitality, e-commerce and retail.
I started out my career in design as a graphic designer for a newspaper in western North Carolina. After working part time there and also working at a bank as a teller, I quit my job(s) and moved to the UK when I was 23 (fell in love with an English guy, who became my boyfriend, and now my husband).
Fresh off the plane from my small town in NC in 2012, I hit the streets knocking on doors for part time work in Tunbridge Wells while applying for design jobs. After scaring a number of reserved British people with my American enthusiasm, I landed a job after 3 weeks as a digital designer.
The rest is sort of history - I’ve always been into tech, coding, design and gadgets. I love thinking ‘what if…’ and reading about new ideas being tested and then brought to life, like self-driving cars, augmented reality used in medicine, etc. I consider myself lucky to work in a field where I can constantly be pushed to learn new things, and to think of how to solve problems from different perspectives.
When I’m not busy being a design nerd, I love being outdoors whether it’s gardening, hiking or travelling. I also love motorsports and enjoy racing go-karts, drag racing (in the US) - or just hanging out with my partner and our two kitties.
