Professional background: User Experience Lead at Realtair

Originally hailing from Cheshire in the UK, now based in Melbourne – my career began editing documentaries for broadcast TV before moving into motion design and advertising via a multinational publisher along the way. Having worn many hats, I think I’m a fairly well-rounded designer but the skills that have served me well over the years have been a natural curiosity, being open to new learnings, an understanding of how human narratives can charge emotions and behaviours in different contexts as well as being highly detail-oriented – I love details.

What’s your motivation for becoming a DiR?

Having made the journey from my previous career into the world of UX, I made many mistakes along the way. I’d love to help others make their own journeys, find their strengths and use them for good!

What are your hobbies and interests?

Cycling, Running, Photography and being a dad!

One book or movie you’d recommend to read or watch to all your mentees?
