Endlessly curious & naturally empathetic

Hey there! My name’s Chris & I’m a creative problem solver with 9 years experience helping businesses turn great ideas into amazing digital products.

Formerly an iOS app developer, I made the switch to design after realising my skills & interests were better suited to solving peoples’ real-world problems rather than the technical nuances of development/software engineering.

I love tackling different challenges throughout a product & customer's journey. Whether that’s using my endless curiosity & natural empathy doing user research to dig deep & understand users’ needs – their ‘why’, or using my imagination & systematic approach to use the Design Thinking process ideating & designing intuitive solutions based on users’ insights.

Having worked in both agency & SaaS/startup settings, I have a variety of experience that I can lean on no matter what stage a product may be in – whether that’s trying to find product/market fit, getting to an MVP, or right through to publishing a production-ready product with continuous development.

I'm always trying to grow and learn something new. I lose track of time when I'm creating, surfing, getting lost in nature somewhere, or exploring new food, people, & places in foreign countries.

If you’re interested in working together, get in touch!

That’s me 😛
