I have a degree in Computer Science and was a web developer for a number of years before transitioning into UX design. At high school, I had a choice between art and technology and despite choosing technology, I’ve never lost that creative drive. Even in my years as a software developer, I was always the one who was in photoshop designing the user interface before UX was a thing. Looking back, where I am now makes a lot of sense.
After a few years overseas working in London & San Francisco, I made the transition from backend web developer to front end UI developer & designer, allowing me to balance the technology and creative sides. When the App Store arrived, I started my own company to design and develop mobile apps for iOS and Android. Initially on the tools, both design and coding but then progressing into UX leadership as the company grew in size. I still keep my coding and design skills sharp. My latest role has been UX Management with a focus on Human Centred Design, leadership and mentoring.
I’ve worked for startups, small & medium sized businesses and large corporates in Australia, the UK and the USA. Read Less
